A shortage of small change in the England of the 1650s and 1660s was solved by local traders issuing their own tokens.

These farthings and halfpennies were issued by many individuals across Norfolk, including John Wilch and Richard Shaw at Cley.

Adrian will talk about the background behind these tokens series and will look at the Cley issues in particular.
