Auckland Licensed Victuallers Associatiom

Description

The Auckland Licensed Victuallers Association issued penny tokens celebrating the formation of their organisation in 1871, and provided coins for giving change to hotel patrons in the city. According to a report quoted by numismatist H.A. Robinson, up to 50% of copper coins in circulation in New Zealand at that time were trade tokens, a response to a deep shortage of official currency in the country. The New Zealand Licensed Victuallers Association, of which the Auckland association was a part, joined the Hospitality Association of New Zealand in the late twentieth century.
