DNW Auctions Brings Exceptionally Rare Parys Mine Co. Token in the Upcoming SaleJan 24, 2023 10:00 EST
The Parys Mining Company (PMCo) produced copper pennies by sourcing metal from Parys Mountain, Wales. Considered to be the premier tokens of the 18th century, the tokens have a company design logo on their back. An example of a PMCo coin will lead the upcoming British Tokens, Tickets, and Passes sale, presented by DNW Auctions. Alongside a portrait is the name of PMCo with the words, “We promise to pay the bearer one penny.” The token was issued by the company in 1788.
Coin collectors can also find a seven-tray carry case filled with a rare, comprehensive group of miscellaneous tokens and checks. The black and red case comes with locks and a key. The tokens and checks come in different shapes including circular, square, rectangular, star, triangular, and octagonal. Also highlighted in this auction are 17th-century coins inscribed “Joseph Knibb: Clockmaker in Oxon.” On the obverse is a Roman numeral chapter ring engraved with the initials I and K on either side of a single hand to the center.
