You will remember the controversial puffin tokens of Lundy Island.  Now we have the modern fantasies.  ::)  , 1, 2, 4 and 6 Puffins.   :o

hmm, count the puffins.
Had never realised you could count the puffins on the original tokens, similar to the Tonga set.
always willing to trade modern UK coins for modern coins from elsewhere....

Yes, but only a half puffin and one puffin - not the extra ones that appear in this fantasy set.

This is not the first time the and 1 puffin have been re-issued, last time was in 1965 using the original designs (but with the date changed to 1965)  They were issued by "Modern world coins Ltd"
At least the original tokens were valid for five months, before being declared illegal....
