Token: Canada To Facilitate Trade  1825
Token: Canada To Facilitate Trade 1825

Hi Patrick -- Trade happens. When a government does not supply coinage so that trade can happen, someone or something steps in to fill the void. Back in 1825, Canada was a British Colony and Great Britain issued these tokens 'to facilitate trade.'

Most of these old tokens are pretty well worn, like the one in our picture. In such a worn state, the approximate retail value is $10 US dollars or so. If the token in well preserved, you can multiply that value by 10. Condition means a lot to collectors.

Selling your token to a coin dealer will generally yield about one half of the retail value. The other have is dealer margin, which he or she needs to keep the dealership solvent.

Coin: 6210 , Genre: Tokens

Requester description: 1825 I have a coin, between the quarter dollar size and half dollar size, that has a 1825 date on the back with the words, 'To Facilitate Trade' printed on the back. The face has no legible wording but has the bust of a man. Along with the printing on the back there is a lady pictured. She is sitting, facing right, with a scale in her hand. The coin is thinner than current coin denominations. Any help would be appreciated.
