The Croyland Halfe Peny token was issued in the 17th century due to an absence of a useable quantity of small change. People such as shopkeepers, publicans and craftsmen, together with City Corporations and Overseers of the Poor began to produce vast quantities of small brass or copper tokens, with values of a farthing, a halfpenny, or more rarely a penny to pay for simple or basic work.  Between 1648 and 1672 there were 300 different types of tokens produced in Lincolnshire alone, by some 240 different people and organisations.

This enamel pin badge pictures one side of the Croyland Halfe Peny token and is available only from Manor House 1690.  (The reverse side of the coin depicts the Croyland Abbey coat of arms; three whips and three knives.)
