My newest "favorite" Conder token. This is common enough, but most of these I've seen show clear evidence of circulation. This specimen, on the other hand, exhibits minimal, if any, wear.

That's an exceptionally attractive example. I have a typically well worn one.

Another interesting aspect of this token is its decorative edge. This token being struck without a collar, the pattern was rolled on (there's an section where the starting and ending points overlap).

Just for added info, this Condor tokens number is D & H 1033.
Maker unknown.

It's worth mentioning that while today we remember Newton mostly on account of his greatness in the field of physics, his appearance on this token may have as much to do with his longstanding service as Master of The Royal Mint.
