Canada (Bas) Sous Penny Token 1837 to 1839
Hi Rick -- There are several variations of these old bank tokens from Quebec, Canada. One of the patterns is shown on this CoinQuest page. Your coin has the standing figure instead of the bank building. They come in one sou (un sou) and two sous (deux sous) denominations, which are equivalent to half penny and penny, respectively.
Value-wise, these are low value pieces unless they are in excellent shape. A worn coin is worth $1 US dollar or less. Values climb into the hundreds of dollars if you can find an uncirculated example. See our other page for value listings and requirements for the truly valuable pieces from 1838 and 1839.
