Coins For Sale

Commonly known as Ringed farthings, Lucky Farthings & Encased farthings, these tokens were produced as an advertising medium for businesses. These items were more popular in the USA where a multitude of examples were produced, by several manufacturers. In the UK there is very little information about these pieces hence my attempt to catalogue any examples that come to light. The main producer of the UK versions was J.R.Gaunt, who are still in operation today, although encased coins are no longer one of their products.

The varieties identified to date are listed on the left. Should you have any examples of encased farthings that are not listed or any encased farthings you wish to sell, please feel free to contact me
