Thomas Engelen has updated his Cardboard Coins of Great Britain book.
CARDBOARD COINS OF GREAT BRITAIN 1947-1990
Now available on-line at the Newman Numismatic Portal the fully revised book on British Cardboard coins by Thomas Engelen. These cardboard coins were used in Great Britain to help children to learn the many different coins in circulation including their value. Cardboard was used as an inexpensive material to teach children on Farthings, Pennies, Sixpences, Shillings, Florins and Crowns to name a few. Included in the book are also the school banknotes, mostly of 10 Shillings and 1 pound denomination. Also included are toy games in which these cardboard coins were used with the oldest play set dated 1905.
Profusely illustrated, many of the items listed are pictured for easy recognition and identification.
A summary of cardboard coins used in former British overseas territories are listed as well, including for Australia, East- and West Africa, India and New Zealand to name a few.
A list on Rarity and Prices completes the work.
We hope the readers of The E-Sylum will enjoy finding their own cardboard coins, and perhaps start collecting these nice paranumismatic items as well !
