Albany Church Penny

The First Presbyterian Church of Albany, New York, authorized an issue of 1,000 copper uniface tokens in 1790. These passed at 12 to a shilling and were used to stop contributions of worn and counterfeit coppers. Two varieties were made, one with the addition of a large D (the British abbreviation for penny) above the word CHURCH.
