Description

A penny token from the Deseronto lodge of the Royal Black Preceptory, a protestant fraternal society.

The wording around the edge of the coin reads "DESERONTO R. B. P. No.928 * DESERONTO ONT *". In the centre of the coin is a skull and cross bones motif surrounded by a triangle, with the words "A PIECE OF MONEY" around the upper sides and "INSTITUTED AUG. 3 1915" along the base. There is also a photograph of the back of the coin.

This token was found in a yard in Mill Street, Deseronto, Ontario by Lyle Bonner, who loaned it to the Archives so that images of it could be shared with a wider audience.
