    Civil War Patriotic Token - Inventory Number: CUR 169

    By 1862, the second year of the Civil War, government-issued coinage began vanishing from circulation. American citizens hoarded all coins with gold and silver, and eventually began hoarding copper-nickel cents as well. This made it extremely difficult for businesses to conduct transactions. In response, many merchants turned to private minters to fill the void left by the hoarded coins.

    Comes housed in 5 inch x 4 inch riker display case with blue velvet and descriptive card.
