Jan asks: I have a 1857 Canadian 1/2 penny/token. How much is it worth?
You probably have a Bank of Upper Canada token. These were minted in penny and 1/2 penny denominations. The Bank of Upper Canada was given the right to make these copper coins during the civil unrest in Montreal in 1849. They are dated from 1850-1857 and show St. George slaying a dragon with the date below on the obverse and a crown, anchor and cornucopia on the reverse.
They are very plentiful and most bring approximately US$1.
