Sierra Leone Slave Trade Abolished 1807 Penny Token


Sierra Leone, bronze "Slave Trade Abolished" 1807 penny trade token.
David Vice says in his Coinage of British West Africa, that the pieces made not in proof state were intended to circulate at trading establishments in Sierra Leone. Britain outlawed the slave trade in 1807 and the following year took over this territory from the Sierra Leone Company of London. This interesting and historic piece thereby marks a sea change for the colony. Examples weighing over 24 grams are not tokens but medals struck after 1814.
Edge plain, weight 17.1 grams, dia. 36mm
