The Fascinating World of Conder Tokens

We previously provided a bit of a backstory on the rise of private tokens in British commerce—the field of numismatics that would come to be known as “Conder Tokens”—in an August 2019 blog post in advance of some interesting pieces coming up in that year’s October Collectors Choice Online (CCO) auction.

Our February 2023 CCO Auction of World and Ancient Coins will once again have a strong selection of these enchanting issues. Mostly from the final decade of the 18th century and offering an array of Mint State grades, these specimens should provide every collector with one or more angles to pursue, such as Pidcock’s animal series, Kempson’s series of London buildings, or the “druid” types from Anglesey in Wales. Also among this section totaling 49 pieces will be found a number of types offering contemporary political commentary and satire. Look for all these fascinating tokens in our CCO, coming online in early February.

To view our upcoming auction schedule and future offerings, please visit where you may register and participate in this and other forthcoming sales.

We are always seeking coins, medals, and paper money for our future auctions, and are currently accepting submissions for our Spring 2023 Hong Kong auction and our August 2023 Global Showcase auction. Additionally, we are accepting submissions for our Collectors Choice Online (CCO) auctions, the next of which will be held in February 2023, and the next for which we are accepting submissions will be in May 2023. If you would like to learn more about consigning, whether a singular item or an entire collection, please contact one of our consignment directors today and we will assist you in achieving the best possible return on your material.
