Coins, tokens, and medals
The Folger collection contains approximately 400 coins, tokens, and medals. Like the rest of the collection, they either date to Shakespeare's era, or relate to Shakespeare (or both, as is the case with this 17th-century token of the "White Hart" that James Orchard Halliwell-Phillipps collected because it's "the name of an inn (though not the identical one) mentioned by Shakespeare.")
The coins, tokens, and medals that have (so far) been cataloged in Hamnet can be found by searching each of those terms as a "Genre/Form" keyword.
Other finding aids include:
- Coins: Scanned copies of old handwritten cards (actual size, four per page, on legal-size paper)
- Medals: Scanned typewritten list of Shakespeare medals. Note: envelope numbers on the list do not necessarily match current envelope numbers (this is in the process of being revised).
