Coop tokens.  Originally made from tinned iron, brass, copper or bronze, then latterly of plastic, each token bore the name of the local society and the monetary value.

Token Coop


Coop members would go into their local society shops to buy the tokens for bread, milk, coal etc. The amount they spent would then be registered for their dividend payments.  The members would then give the token to the milkman, bread man or coal roundsman etc in return for the items they wanted.
