The Three Telephone Tokens
The only Ugandan tokens I know are telephone tokens as issued by "Uganda Posts and Telecommunications Corporation". Here they are....
A Ugandan 5 Shillings Telephone Token - actual size 21mm diameter. (Image from Marco Fiumani).
A Ugandan 20 Shillings Telephone Token - actual size 23mm diameter. (Image from Marco Fiumani).
A Ugandan 50 Shillings Telephone Token - actual size 25mm diameter.
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.
