A post-medieval lead circular double-sided token, dating to c. 1500-1850. The token has raised bust on one side within a raised edge; it is uncertain in which direction the bust is facing. The reverse has a raised letter A placed off-centre; it has no raised edge. Lead tokens had a wide variety of potential uses such as tallies, gaming pieces, tickets, weights, etc. and are believed to have been locally produced; they are therefore difficult to date precisely. Those carrying initials are generally deemed to be post-medieval in date (1500-1850), those which seem to mimic medieval penn…

A Post Medieval tin alloy token of James II (AD 1685-1688), dating to 1688. An "American plantations token", uncertain type. cf. examples published by Newman (1964: plate LVI). Such tokens were valued at one 24th of a Spanish real, or one and a half farthings. Minted in the closing months of James II's reign and intended for use in the colonies, it is doubtful that the tokens were ever officially authorised for circulation and there is no evidence they ever circulated in North America (Newman 1964: 324).
