Thailand Porcelain Gambling tokens

These porcelain tokens were made in Thailand during the Bangkok Dynasty (1782-1809). They were made and issued by the gambling houses or Hongs in Bangkok for use in their gambling establishments. They are coloured and each house had different tokens, to distinguish one from another. Because of a shortage of silver coins, these porcelain gambling tokens actually circulated as money in everyday usage. I understand that they circulated as late as the 1870’s. These porcelain tokens from Thailand are now over 200 years old, there are a number of different types. We can supply one or more for just £17.50 a token and remember what other 200 year old porcelain can you get for this little money?

Victoria Copper Halfpenny Fine_obv

Victoria Copper Halfpenny Fine

Today we call small coins copper, but they are struck in bronze or even Steel. The last British coins struck in copper were of Queen Victoria and dated 1859/1860. So these Victoria Copper Halfpennies we are offering you were struck between 1838-1860. Dates will be of our choice and there are none of the rare dates in the group. You have the Young Head of Queen Victoria on the obverse and a seated figure of Britannia holding a trident on the reverse. The design was deeply engraved and the thick copper planchet made the coins strike even better
