Irish Tokens 1653-1679 


These were given out by the Crown in Ireland, and were used as a royal license to do business. If you were a trades or business merchant you had to obtain this token. Some had dates on them and many did not. By 1680 the tokens were replaced by a Crown halfpenny copper coin.
