Thanks for the compliments on the R.I Token. Indeed, one of my favourites!
Here is another coin I really like - the Washington Small Eagle Cent, 1791. Both the small and large eagle varieties were manufactured in England. Many examples (a cask full) was shipped to America to promote the coin and did circulate there. It is said George Washington did no approve of his portrayal on these and other coin bearing his portrait as being too reminiscent of the monarchy.
Connecticut coppers have the most complex minting history of all colonial issues. There were more that 355 die combinations, with at least 126 type varieties having 26 distinct bust styles made by at least six different mints. Yet, the basic design of the Connecticut Coppers never changed; all issues imitated the British halfpenny! The obverse depicted the bust of a man wearing a laurel wreath, the figure sometimes faced to the left (as George II) or to the right (as George III) and was either clad in mail armor or draped in a toga. The obverse legend was one of several forms of Latin abbreviations for the phrase "By the authority of Connecticut." The reverse depicted a seated personification of Liberty closely resembling the British Britannia with a legend consisting of an abbreviated form of "Independence and Liberty."
