E-Sylum reader Horacio Morero Ferrero has published a new book on the brewery tokens of Uruguay. Congratulations! -Editor
“Las fichas utilizadas por las fábricas de cerveza en Uruguay – Catalogación y marco histórico”
(“The tokens used by the breweries in Uruguay - Cataloging and historical framework”)
By Horacio Morero Ferrero.
Edited by “Linardi & Risso” library.
Printed by “Gráfica Mosca” in Montevideo, Uruguay.
110 pages. Full colour. In Spanish.
It is the first book specifically published on Uruguayan tokens. It presents a meticulous cataloging of the metal coins used by the breweries during the first half of the XX
century. In addition, it offers varied data and comments on the tokens: at what period of time and where and how they were used. This accumulation of information generates an
inexorable journey through the past of the beer industry. Two brief chapters, one at the beginning dedicated to the XIX century and another at the end dedicated to the last
seventy years up to date, end up closing a historical thread of these pages that are more than a mere catalog. They are also a walk through the very rich economic history of
Uruguay. In total, 55 tokens are cataloged in the book. The book is now available on eBay.
The author, Horacio Morero Ferrero, is a former president of the Instituto Uruguayo de Numismática. He is a member of IFINRA (Instituto Federal de Investigadores Numismáticos
de la República Argentina). He also won the “Alberto Coco Derman” prize in 2015 given by FENYMA (Federación de Entidades Numismáticas y Medallísticas de Argentina) with his work
“Numismática y metamorfosis: la reacuñación de los patacones de las Provincias del Río de la Plata en Brasil” (“Numismatics and metamorphosis: the overtrikes of the crowns of
the Provinces of the Rio de la Plata in Brazil”), edited in Spanish and Portuguese.
