Early American And Related Tokens
Elephant Tokens Circa 1672-1694

The London Elephant Tokens were undated but struck circa 1672 to 1694, and most were struck in copper, but some using brass. These pieces were not struck for the colonies, but are related by the obverse die to the Carolina and New England Elephant Tokens.

The Carolina Elephant Tokens were dated 1694 as a halfpenny denomination. The 1694 New England Elephant Tokens is the most rare of the three and is rarely seen on the market. It's believed that these Elephant Tokens were struck in England as a promotional piece for the American Colonies.
