There were three periods of token issue in Britain--approx.dates 1648--1672 shortage of coinage in circulation due to the civil war--mostly farthings-------1787-1797 men were moving from working on the land to factories during the industrial revolution, again not enough small coinage in circulation--mostly halfpennies-----1811-1815 same reason also the Napoleonic Wars
