1,000 TOKENS - $349.00 POSTPAID!


These tokens are overruns struck by the Patrick Mint between 1976 and 1979. 90% of the tokens had mintages of only 1,000 pieces and those offered represent what the customers at the time choose not to buy. The dies used to strike these tokens are long gone and no more will be struck. It is safe to say that these tokens are being sold for less than it would take to manufacture them today and thus represent extremely good value. All tokens are bronze, approximately nickel size and are offered in the following manners in addition to the special offer above:


100 different tokens of our choice. Price $37.50.

1,000 tokens, at least 700 different, no more than two alike.
This is our best value! Only $349.00!

General Information on These Tokens

Commencing in 1976 and for the following three years the Patrick Mint was engaged in the production of 20 mm size copper tokens. These approximately nickel size pieces were struck using stock obverse designs of a wide variety while the reverses were personalized to the order to the customer. Many were done with the customer's name, address and phone number, making them business cards. Others were issued as "good fors", such as good for $10.00 off on the purchase of such and such product. Some others were issued in series such as Great Americans, Great Events in American Numismatics, etc. The obverses include different Eagle motifs, coin designs such as the Pine Tree Shillings and Shekels, Independence Hall, Twin Bells, as well as Indian Heads with various dates, etc. A large number of tokens were issued by coin dealers. The tokens were ordered by people all over the world although primarily were struck for people and businesses in the U.S. In all, some 1341 different tokens were made not including those made with more than one obverse type. The 949 different tokens issued during the U.S. Bicentennial in 1976 are catalogued and illustrated in The Bicentennial Tokens of The Patrick Mint which is still available from us for $5.95 postpaid. A new work encompassing the whole series is in preparation.

The tokens which we offer are all overruns struck between 1976 and 1979 and are not recently made. The dies used to strike these tokens are long gone and no more can be made. All of the tokens have been sitting for a minimum of 16-20 years in cloth bags and remain in Choice Uncirculated condition. These tokens were discussed by Q.D. Bowers in his well know book Adventures With Rare Coins on pages 267 and 277. It is important to realize that in over 90% of the cases the mintage for these tokens was limited to 1,000 pieces. The issue of this series of tokens has ended and we have no plans of ever producing anything of this size again. The present offering is the last time these tokens will be available in such abundance and quite likely the last time they will be available this cheaply. They represent excellent value, primarily because they are being sold below the current cost to produce them. We hope you will try collecting them as they represent an inexpensive and interesting, as well as challenging series to collect. No one to our knowledge has ever completed a set of these tokens.
