Serge Pelletier sent us the press release for his latest book -

"The second edition of “Standard Catalogue of Canadian Municipal
Trade Tokens, Vol. 2 – Alberta” by Serge Pelletier, is now available

“The significant amount of 2005 issues and a strong market have all
contributed” Pelletier replied when questioned as to the reasons
behind this new edition."

"The 142 page publication is letter size, spiral bound, with a card
cover and a transparent plastic protector.  It list the some 465
municipal trade tokens of Alberta known to date, in all metal and

have been given for pure gold pieces)."

"A second version of the book contains a CD-ROM with an electronic

Formerly known as “Canadian Trade Dollars”, Canadian municipal trade
tokens are community “coins” sponsored by a local non-profit
organization and given legal monetary value in a specific area, for
a limited time, by the appropriate local authority.  They are used
as money in normal commercial transaction during the period of
validity.  These tokens have been issued, however, for commemorative
and fund raising purposes since 1958."
