Medieval Tokens - Shop

Tokens like these appear in the 13th Century, as the great boom in pilgrimage takes off in England.  As the smallest coin of the time was a silver penny, (and a skilled tradesman might earn 2 or 3 pennies a day) small change was in short supply. One theory explaining these tokens is that they were used as small change, or meal vouchers, by people on pilgrimage, or that they might be issued in lieu of small change by businesses.

These are cast by hand in a stone mould and are made of pure tin. The originals were made of lead-tin alloy
