This book, written by an expert in the field and drawing on recent research, aims to put Britain's eighteenth-century provincial token coinage into the context of the currency problems of the time. On the basis of a wide range of both documentary and secondary sources it examines its major manufacturers and their intention, and through profiles of many of the issuers involved it sets out to give a living dimension to a bygone monetary phenomenon.
