I have contacted Stagecoach who tell me that the National Transport Tokens were issued for England, Scotland and Wales only, so the aluminium Euro one must presumably be a test or trial piece. You can see on the logo face that the Registered mark is not present on the Euro coin, otherwise the logo is the same as the 50 official one. As I am selling a collection on behalf of someone else, I shall sell this Euro token on Ebay as a singleton, the rest still await more sorting.

I must seek one of those 1Euro  ::)


I now have the Euro 1 test piece with the NTT logo (the is omitted) 25mm Aluminium and edge reeded with seven indents.

Very similar to the flan of the 20 euro cent except this is 22.25mm and edge plain with seven indents

However I am no further forward with the reason for the test piece.

Since Birmingham and Utrecht are out of business now, maybe Roger Williams Mint (now TokensDirect) knows more.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

I am confident we have covered the national tokens well in WoT, though I'd like to see the test tokens above added, but additional detail is of course always welcome. Thanks malj1!

Mention has also been made previously of proofs of some issues too.
