Token: Medieval Netherlands (Spanish) Jeton TEMPERANDO ET PROVIDENDO 1582

Hi Nancy -- This is a copper jeton from the old Netherlands. A jeton is a token, usually used for counting. We have a page with background information on these fascinating collectibles at this link [Click Here].

The jeton in our picture is in great condition. It comes from Jean Elsen et ses Fils in Brussels where it sold for 60 euros (about $80 US dollars) during a 2012 auction. CoinQuest thanks Jean Elsen et ses Fils for use of their coin image.

Value goes down in worse condition:

worn: $10 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $35
well preserved: $100

You must apply the concepts on our Terminology page to convert catalog values to actual values.
