The word ‘token’ in this context means a coin or similar object which is issued for use in place of regular or official coinage. Members’ interests include the classical series of 17th, 18th and 19th century tokens along with a whole range of coin-like objects which are collectively known as ‘Paranumismatica’ i.e. outside the scope of formal Numismatics consisting of Tokens, Tickets, Passes, Jetons, Historical Medals and Medallions.
The Token Corresponding Society is the Society for collectors and enthusiasts of tokens and associated paranumismatica. Dedicated to researching and cataloguing all things tokens, both historic and recent.
For non-members we welcome requests for help in identifying tokens. Please contact us if you feel we can help.
