Token: Netherlands Roermond Municipal Schild  1982
Token: Netherlands Roermond Municipal Schild 1982

The Netherlands is one of the few countries that allow municipalities to issue their own money. They are called stedenpenning, or cities money, and there is a great page of them at Jezuss.nl [PRESS HERE].

The example of requester CVis comes from the city of Roermond in the Netherlands, and it celebrates the 750th anniversary of the city. There are several schild denominations and a few different patterns.

A few decades ago, municipal tokens were hot collector items. However, only a small collector following exists today. See the MunicipalTokens.com web site [PRESS HERE].

Typical values for the Roermond issues, and tokens like it, run like this:

worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $4
fully uncirculated: $8

To sell such an item, you need to find a collector. eBay is a good place to look. Coin dealers will not pay much for these tokens because the collector following is small and they have tough times selling them.
