Newfie, P.E.I. tokens detailed in new book

Nova Scotia collector, researcher and author Eric Leighton has published a limited-edition reference book for Newfoundland and Labrador plus Prince Edward Island tokens.

The 126-page hardcover book, The Trade Tokens of Newfoundland and Labrador & Prince Edward Island, is more than six years in the making.

Following the seven-page introduction, the book includes a checklist and index for both provinces’ tokens issued between 1867 and 2020. Each listing also includes a historical account with photographs, details of the tokens’ size, shape and composition plus any new research.

A Fellow of the Canadian Numismatic Research Society, Leighton illustrates every trade token, including new additions with varieties, in colour.

The Newfoundland and Labrador section includes 63 pages while the Prince Edward Island tokens comprise 34 pages.

The books are available for $44.95 (plus shipping, which is $20 within Canada).
