    Hello everyone!

    Does anyone here have their own business tokens/personal tokens? I am planning on having dies made to have my own "hard times" good for one cent tokens just as a novelty. These will be struck on cent planchets as well as in .999 silver.

    I got a couple from David Khan at the FUN show, and they are pretty cool. My design would include a capped bust dime portrait.

    Would like to see some of your business tokens if you have any, for fun or maybe just for inspiration.

    I have made some for people and now that I have my new (to me) coin press up and running, I will be making more.

    Another CT member sent me these from his business.

    I also have a few more from other members but no photos of them. Wooden Nickels were used for all of them.

    I didn’t strike any pieces (though I think that would be cool), I did have a coupe thousand wooden nickels made many years ago that look suspiciously like those in a previous post;)..... I thought it was a great novelty. My sales guys thought they were lame and I never got the traction from them that I had hoped for. It wasn’t a big expense..... I only say this because I suspect that striking a marketing piece would be costly. I would hate to see you sink a lot of expense into something that didn’t give you some reward in return...... It beats the year I bought baseball caps though. A TV news guy interviewed somebody in an unemployment line. The fellow being interviewed was wearing my ballcap!

    I made some of these and it was fairly inexpensive.
