One of the more popular varieties of Western Pioneer Minor Coinage is Saloon Tokens. Used as trade tokens, bars and saloons would issue small medals stamped in variety of shapes and sizes that served as drink tokens and a way to offer their customers free drinks to consume at a later time. In some cases, for example when drinks were priced at two drinks for twenty-five cents, saloon patrons would get a drink and a token for their 25-cent payment. To learn more about this fun and rewarding segment of collectibles, Monaco has a few copies remaining of a concise booklet titled ”Field Guide to Collecting Western Pioneer Minor Coinage,” which is a fantastic introduction to collecting great examples of the more important tokens.
