This eclectic auction category is for coin-like objects—tokens, medals, and badges, etc.—that are not legal tender, although some types were used in lieu of money or for barter. Usually made of metal or plastic, some tokens represented store credit, “good for” a particular amount of money at a particular restaurant or store, such as coal scrip, military exchange/trade tokens, and bank tokens. Similarly, some tokens are to show that the bearer paid in advance for a ride or service in order to get a discount, such as bus tokens, subway tokens, other fare tokens, Canadian highway tokens, and telephone tokens used in countries such as Italy or Israel. Here you may also find gaming tokens (such as Chuck E. Cheese tokens), sales tax tokens, commemorative and souvenir medals and tokens, and government/military/police/firefighter challenge coins. Some examples of exonumia were once real currency but have been engraved or altered with new artwork, such as love tokens and hobo coins.
