Number 5 : Two Pennies

The illustration appeared on 5 individual and 6 souvenir labels and was first issued between September 1965 and October 1966.

Tokens were issued by some of the leading mines and it is thought they were acceptable currency in the near neighbourhood.  In some cases they would be accepted in “tied” shops which were owned by the larger mines. The Scorrier coin shows that 240 tokens were required to make One Pound (because there were twelve Pennies in One Shilling, and twelve Shillings in One Pound).
