An E-Sylum reader forwarded this article from a local Bayonne, NJ newspaper. Like many articles in the popular press, it misidentifies a medal as a "coin". It's about an item sold this week on eBay, where the seller called it a "token medal". So I guess itís a cointokenmedal. It went for more than $174. -Editor The seller describes the coin as "Very Scarce 1931 Port Authority of New York (and New Jersey) "Bayonne Bridge Dedication" Whitehead, & Hoag made 33mm. Bronze Token Medal."
The Bayonne Bridge was built in 1931.
