UGANDA

The Three Telephone Tokens

    The only Ugandan tokens I know are telephone tokens as issued by "Uganda Posts and Telecommunications Corporation". Here they are....

   As per the absence of an image credit for the 50 Shillings token, that piece is mine. I would have considered it lucky to come across just one piece - but I actually found 2 pieces on the same day, in the same tray of cheap loose coins/tokens, for sale at a local coin fair. I couldn't believe it.

  These three Ugandan tokens are to be found listed as Uganda 1, 2 and 3 in a book called "Catalog of Telephone and Telegraph Tokens", by H. A. Groenendijk as published January 1989 and re-printed occasionally since.
