During the 19th century, the shortage of small change was a huge problem across the Australian colonies. Essential for everyday transactions, the lack of lower denomination coinage became a full blown currency crisis during the Gold Rush.

Between 1851 and 1861, the population rose from 400,000 to over one million. This, combined with a dramatic increase in both wealth and commercial activity, meant that small change was more essential than ever. The currency crisis sparked an innovative response, with private businesses issuing Trade Tokens to facilitate trade. Unofficial 'coins', the popularity and widespread use of Trade Tokens was such that colonial governments across Australia eventually banned their use. Today, Trade Tokens are sought after as genuine artefacts of the Gold Rush.

Historic, affordable and very collectable, we have a marvellous array of Trade Tokens in stock. Set aside by a collector from Great Britain, this diverse selection includes tokens from Melbourne, Hobart, Sydney and New Zealand - trader and type of our choice. Available individually, or buy a token from each location and receive a FREE Renniks Australia & New Zealand Token Values guide!
