Post-medieval coin hoard from Newton-with-Scales, Lancashire (2004T30) I have examined a group of coins reported found at Newton with Scales in January 2004. The coins are all official English issues of the traditional sterling standard, i.e. 92/5% fine metal.The coins consist of three denominations: 11 groats (fourpences) of Mary and Elizabeth Tudor, and a sixpence and 7 threepences of Elizabeth, amounting to a sum with a face value of five shillings and fivepence, which would be something like £20-30 in modern terms.The coins would certainly have circulated together, and the lim…

Duke of Lancaster/John of Gaunt token dating from 1791. In the 18th century, shortage of small change became so bad that these penny and halfpenny tokens were issued for workers. Unlike the 17th century tokens which were issued in the main by small traders, the 18th century tokens were pcincipally issued by large manufacturers such as breweries, mines, iorn works, cloth manufacturers and large copper works.

Cu-alloy token or counter dating from the late 18th century. The major series of these cu-alloy tokens or counters which are depicting Queen Anne appears to have been struck in Birmingham during the reign of George III. Counters of that class bear designs based on Queen Anne's shillings and sixpences: all bear the pre-Union form of shields...and show the mis-spelling 'RIG' for 'REG' which can be seen on this counter, too. Observed dates for pieces run from 1702-1774. This one is dated '1771'.

Cast lead-alloy token dating to the late medieval or post medieval period. While plain on the reverse it has a very worn moulded cruciform decoration on the obverse. If there is any other decoration left on the ob- or reverse, it is impossible to tell what it was - the object is too worn.

Very worn fragment of the central part of a hook-and-loop fastener dating to the late medieval or post medieval period. Both the hook and loop are missing and the remaining plaque is very worn and thin around the edges. The remaining fragment is round and what is left of the decoration is only fragmentary, too. The decoration was geometric in relief, most likely, rather than figurative.

Cast lead token. Obverse depicts long cross with pellets in each quarter. Reverse shows signs of a cross decoration although badly worn. It is unclear as to why lead tokens were produced although they appear numerous in the 17th and 18th centuries (Bailey 1999 page 56). They may have been produced as a form of working class low denomination currency associated with rural areas (Bailey 2000 pages 13-14). Alternative uses may have been for payment of casual workers or gambling (ibid. page 14). This example appears to be of possible French origin and political in nature (ibid…
