Two Co–op tokens

The Co-op issued plastic tokens such as these during the 1950s and early 1960s; some remained in use into the late 1970s. They were bought at its High Street shop in large batches, often £1 worth, and exchanged at the front door for milk or bread when deliveries were made. The red tokens were for milk, the blue ones for bread and other produce.
