Vaughn Humberstone writes:
I am in the process of finalising the 2011 edition of Merchants Making Money, which will be 279 pages in length and will contain 44 full biographical articles on the issuers of New Zealand tradesmen's tokens, as well as information on the remaining NZ token issuers and on all six of the firms known to have struck NZ tokens.
In the mean time, I am having a series of articles published by Token Publishing Ltd in the Coin News magazine in England (Auckland issuers, December 2008, Vol. 45, No. 12, Dunedin issuers, March 2010, Vol. 47, No. 3, Wellington issuers, forthcoming ).
Vaughn provided a section excerpted from the book. It's too long to publish here, but here's an example of one of the tokens. Thanks, and good luck with the book.
The undated one-penny tokens were struck using two distinct reverse dies; one engraved with the name of the token maker, STOKES & MARTIN MELBOURNE, and one without this inscription. The reverse depicts the central shield of the 1864 Christchurch coat of arms.
