Annand Smith & Co. - Family Grocers

Description

This company of Family Grocers of Collins Street, Melbourne, issued Australia's first circulating copper tokens, on 20 October 1849, as reported in The Argus. Although the token is not inscribed with a date, this report and an order for their manufacture discovered by researchers in Birmingham, England, confirm that they were issued before the great population boom of the gold rush.

In 1949, the Numismatic Association of Victoria issued a medal marking the centenary of the first Australasian token.
