Collecting Conder tokens is an intriguing hobby. These tokens come in thousands of varieties, and many of them have beautiful and intricate artwork. They were first minted In 1787 in response to British coin shortages in outlying areas. They are copper coins (usually pennies and half pennies) minted by towns, businesses, and organizations of all types to meet a need for low denomination coinage that was not being provided by government.
