What is Exonumia?

Exonumia comes from the Greek word “exo” that means “out of”, and a Latin word “nummus” or “coin”. It is a branch of numismatic, and it refers to items such as scrip, tokens, and medals. Exonumia also include items that are coin-like objects that are not issued by the government. Among the most common exonumia include military coins, fantasy coins, bank tokens, and coin reproductions.

Small items such as badges, key tags, wooden nikels, advertising pocket mirrors, communion tokens or membership tokens, arcade and amusement tokens, play money, casino tokens, and other small items from government and non-government facilities to facilitate commerce are also considered as exonumia.
