Token: Gibraltar Robert Keeling 1 and 2 Quart 1810
These are copper tokens, not coins, issued by Robert Keeling, a Gibraltar merchant, to alleviate the shortage of small denomination currency for the local British garrison. Our picture comes from one of our favorite token dealers, ABC Coins and Tokens in Alnwick, UK. They come in 1 and 2 quarto denominations, both about equal in value, with maybe a little more for the 2 quart. Approximate catalog values are:
worn: $25 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $60
well preserved: $120
fully uncirculated: $200

Requester description: 1810 I have a copper coin, I guess from Gibraltar. There is a tower on one side, written 'VALUE ONE QUARTO'. On the other side there is a lion, with a key, written '...something KEELING & SONS'.
