Origin: Civil War tokens were unofficial, privately minted coins that were distributed within the US between 1861 and 1864. The panic of the Civil War had caused many Americans to begin hoarding coins, making it very difficult for businesses to operate. As a result, these businesses began producing a vast number of unofficial tokensover 25,000,000 of them in total!

These particular tokens are known as patriotic tokens, which circulated primarily in the Northeast and Midwest regions of the United States. These tokens were typically pro-Union, and featured patriotic imagery with slogans like "The Union Must and Shall Be Preserved," "Union For Ever," and "Old Glory." Other types of tokens included store cards which displayed the names of local businesses and sutler tokens which bore the names of particular army regiments.
