Illustrated History of Coins and Tokens relating to Canada

P.N. Breton - 1894

P.N. Breton

When in 1890, my first work was issued, I had no expectation that it, a small pamphlet giving engraving only, would have run through two editions numbering 5,000 in all. This success has encouraged me to write the HISTORY OF THE COINS AND TOKENS OF CANADA, Which cannot help but be useful to all classes, for, as has been said, The money of a people is its history, all the people should become acquainted with this history.

My work will also give 1,028 engravings. For a number of years the taste for Numismatic study in Canada has made such rapid progress, that there are now thousands of collectors to be found in all grades of society, and if all have not the same means, yet all have the same desire, that is, to own the greatest number of varieties. As coins have heretofore been known mainly by engravings, their history remaining unknown, this work is intended to supply this want.
