Token: Netherlands (Spanish) Jeton Ipsis Augetur Ab Undis 1681
This is an old jeton (counting or gaming token) from the Spanish Netherlands under Charles II dated 1681. The inscription IPSIS AUGETUR AB UNDIS means THE INCREASE FROM THE WAVES. The woman on the front seems to be harvesting that increase and storing it in a treasure chest.
Jetons like this are collected by a small slice of the numismatic (coin collecting) community and, even though they are old, values do not reach very high. This pattern is somewhat rare, so values are somewhat higher than common jetons.
worn: $10 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $20
