Harry Healy Trading Post token, Good For $1.00
Aluminum, 38 mm, 4.20 gm
Obverse: HARRY HEALY
Reverse: GOOD FOR $1.00 IN TRADE

This interesting dollar-sized aluminum token was a lot of fun to research.

Harry Healy operated a trading post in the Canada Yukon Territory town of Old Crow which is located on the Porcupine River in the far northern part of the territory.

The trading post operated from the 1920's to the 1930's to serve fur trappers who mostly trapped muskrats.

Harry Healy issued three types of tokens, Good For $1.00, $0.50, and $0.25.

The Token and Medal Society (TAMS) TAMS Journal, October 1971, had an article on these tokens, "The Harry Healy Tokens of Old Crow, Y. T.", by Donald M. Stewart.

The Canada Virtual Museum (Digital Museum) has some photographs of Harry Healy with Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) officers and friends.

Here is "Christmas in Old Crow" with Harry Healy and some friends:

The photograph was taken sometime around 1929.
