This gorgeous half penny token (1790) was purchased because I thought it was the first steam struck coinage by Matthew Boulton. Further investigation indicates that the Roe & Co. tokens were only struck by Boulton in 1789. I have no info on who struck this 1790 version showing the profile portrait of Charles Roe. I do know that a 1791 issue of this Cheshire token was die engraved and manufactured by the earliest token maker of the era, William Hancock. The 1789 version obverse (same reverse design) features a bee hive over the cryptic initials 'R & Co', MACCLESFIELD is above. Roe's Macclesfield (Cheshire) copper Conder halfpenny token dated 1790. Obverse: Bust of Charles Roe to right: CHARLES ROE ESTABLISHED THE COPPER WORKS 1758. Reverse: Seated female [Genius of Industry] holding cogwheel and tool (mining tools). MACCLESFIELD HALFPENNY 1790. Edge inscription: PAYABLE AT MACCLESFIELD, LIVERPOOL OR CONGLETON * X *. Charles Roe became a partner in several copper mines, and the famous Anglesey Mines in Wales were first worked under his direction. Roe & Co., owned extensive works for smelting and making copper on land to the east of Macclesfield. This AU+ token retains a hint of red, is flawless and is ~30 mm and 12.65 gm.
