Lower Canada - Colonial and pre-confederation tokens of Canada

The Province of Lower Canada was created by the Constitutional Act 1791 from the partition of the British colony of the Province of Quebec (1763-1791) into the Province of Lower Canada and the Province of Upper Canada.

Tokens in Lower Canada served as coins during the early decades of the 19th century. Extensive quantities of low-denomination tokens were imported from England by merchants hoping to facilitate business in the colonies and make a profit on the tokens.
