This 1813 one-penny token was issued by or for the Halesowen Workhouse in Shropshire. Listed in Davis as Shropshire 3, it is now identified as Withers 748.

Under the patriotic legend "God Save the King," this mounted dragoon (cavalryman) in full charge is a representation of the Royal Worcestershire Yeomanry, who were first raised in 1794 and served horsed in the Second Boer War and World War I before being converted to an anti-tank regiment of the Royal Artillery for duty in World War II.

There exists a semi-popular series of so-called half dollars - smaller commemorative medals than those cataloged by Hibler and Kappan as So-Called Dollars (SCDs). As no comprehensive catalog of these pieces exists, the full potential of the series is unknown.

What is known is that coin dealer C. Smith, circa 1947, began issuing such medals and even got Wayte Raymond to produce an album page for them as part of his National Album series. An important thing to know about nearly all of these medals is that they were struck in 1947, not in the years shown on the medals.

One medal that is often included in this group is the 1935 Pony Express medal. The commemorative piece celebrated the 75th anniversary of the launch of the Pony Express. In the case of this half-dollar-sized medal, 1935 was the actual issue date and it was sponsored/sold by the same Association that marketed (and was then currently marketing) the Oregon Trail Memorial US half dollar commemorative coins.

The obverse of the medal depicts a Pony Express rider out on the trail between relay stations. The reverse depicts a scene at one of the relay stations as a rider prepares to change horses before continuing his shift.




You can read more about the medal here:
