Quote from: andyg on October 16, 2011, 12:08:37 AM"Between 1679 and 1859, the Isle of Man issued tokens and coins "hehe, the John Murray tokens were dated 1668 (so I presume they were issued around then)The 1679 date is when an act of Tynwald was passed outlawing all the tokens in circulation on the island, except the John Murray tokens.
Quote from: andyg on October 16, 2011, 12:08:37 AM Using 1859 as a cut off date is also problematical, see previous notes!
Quote from: coffeetime on October 16, 2011, 11:43:44 AMThat's why I chose the date of 1679, as you could say that is when all the tokens became official.The reason I used the date 1859 is because Numismaster shows that the Victorian penny was issued from 1839 to 1859. Having looked again, I now see that the halfpenny was issued until 1860! So surely they couldn't have existed if Manx authorities had truly banned Manx coinage in 1840? I'm confused...
Quote from: malj1 on October 16, 2011, 01:05:06 PMI feel you should alter that 1859 to read 1839 or perhaps 1840 as all IOM coins and tokens ceased to be legal tender from that latter date.
