Token: US San Antonio Concepcion and San Jose Missions 1720 to 1730

This old token, not made in 1730 but probably during the early 1900s, shows the old Texas Mission of Nuestra Señora de la Purísima Concepción (Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception) which was built in 1716 in eastern Texas and moved to San Antonio in 1730. The reverse shows Mission San Jose, another San Antonio mission. These tokens are not easy to find, and they command decent numismatic (coin collector) value when in good condition:

worn: $8 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $15
well preserved: $25
fully uncirculated: $80
