The Maryland State Seal is depicted on the reverse of the 1934 Founding of the Province of Maryland Tercentenary commemorative half dollar. The coin earns its "sea legs" for this thread via the Maryland Seal.

Per Maryland law, the Seal has two supporters, a plowman (on the viewer's left) and a fisherman (right). The fisherman is described as follows:

(vi) a fisherman wearing a knitted cap somewhat resembling a stocking cap and holding one side of the shield with his right hand and in his left hand a fish that is not specific to any species;

With the maritime industry being a major component of Maryland's economy from its earliest days, it is not surprising to find it represented (via a fisherman) on the long-standing Seal of the State. (Maryland crab cake anyone?)

The Eddystone Light, celebrated in song and fable, was the first lighthouse to be built on a rock in the open sea. This silver shilling token circulated in Devonshire circa 1811-1812.

Dalton 1; Davis 1.



I never pay too much for my tokens...but every now and then I may buy one a little too soon.

@daltonista: I'm enjoying your British token show - it's an area I haven't previously explored. It appears to be filled with many interesting and history-rich pieces!

Thanks for posting!

We aim to please, sir. Just wait until you start a thread for industrial images! (Mines, factories, mills, smokestacks, etc.) It seems that's what Britain was celebrating most enthusiastically during the Regency (1811-1820)...at least from an exonumismatic viewpoint.
