One "Good For" copper token from the Royal Mint of the Renaissance roller milled coinage.
Quote from Ron Landis,
"... a strip of coins made to demonstrate roller milled coinage. They were rolled on a waterwheel powered rolling mill from hand engraved rolls. This was a method used in Segovia, Spain and Halle, Austria in the 16th century and eliminates the need for a high tonnage screw press. Instead of striking each coin, metal strips are fed through a roller mill fitted with engraved rolls. The finished coins were then cut from the strip in small screw presses. The tokens were given as gifts to children who help me demonstrate how to operated the coin hammer. Nobody ever redeemed any as they chose to keep the tokens as souvenirs."
