Edmonton show to release new tokens

New hand-struck tokens will be available at this weekend’s Edmonton Numismatic Society’s (ENS) Coin Show. With a donation of $5 to the ENS, show attendees can receive a special hand-struck token as a keepsake of the event.

At previous shows, the tokens were struck on-site during the event. The tokens are pre-struck for this weekend’s show (March 9-10).

A new reverse design will be revealed at the spring show. In 2022, the ENS hand-struck tokens had a design styled after a King Richard II Groat. Last year, in 2023, the reverse design was inspired by a Charles I Shilling.

Show attendees can choose a token minted on one of three planchets: aluminum, copper, or brass. Quantities are limited. A unique ENS cloth bag is also available with the token for an additional $5 donation. The ENS thanks Andrew Bailes, Howard Glbey and other volunteers for coordinating the minting and distribution of the tokens.
