Coins Are Like Songs: The Upper Canada Coppers, 1815-1841, a forthcoming book by numismatic author Christopher Faulkner, will not be released at the Fall 2016 Toronto Coin Expo this Oct. 1 because of printer issues.
The J. Douglas Ferguson Historical Research Foundation will announce the revised release date once printing has been completed and the book is ready for release.
UPPER CANADA’S MONETARY HISTORY
Faulkner’s new book, which focuses on the monetary history of Upper Canada, examines what was issued as hard money for circulation in Upper Canada between 1812, the end of the War of 1812, and 1841, the date of the formation of the Province of Canada.
“As such, it is a contribution to the monetary history of Upper Canada. It is a partial history only, concerned as it is with copper tokens, the basest form of currency,” said Faulkner, who’s also the author of the award-winning 2012 book, The Holey Dollars and Dumps of Prince Edward Island.
