Recognition of the growing popularity of this traditionally strong field of collecting, Renniks has just released a new catalogue devoted to the Traders Tokens of Australia and New Zealand.
A crucial part of Australia’s currency history, and genuine artefacts of our colonial heritage, tokens were issued by businesses during the 19th century to compensate for a lack of small change for everyday transactions.
An extremely varied series, encompassing a broad array of fascinating types distinguished by a plethora of different designs, the fi eld of Traders Tokens has carved out an increasingly strong following over the years.
Providing a sweeping overview of this important area of Australian numismatics, Renniks new Australian & New Zealand Tokens Values is simply a must-have for any token collector and anyone with an interest in Australian history. An impressive hardback publication, featuring a fantastic range of high quality photographs, the most important aspect of this vital reference is that the rarity AND the market values of every token have been completely revised.
A compulsory element of every numismatic library, Renniks new Australian & New Zealand Tokens Values represents excellent value for money!
This book is unique as it includes full cross references with the 1930s publication of Australasian Tokens and Coins by Arthur Andrews
Michael T Pitt is the also the editor of Renniks Australian Coin & Banknote Values.
