The die engraver for this token was Peter Wyon. It was issued by Robert Christopher & Thomas Jennett who were booksellers and printers in Stockton, they were also the Stockton agents for the Sun Fire Office.
Jennett was Christopher's apprentice and on the completion of his indentures, he was taken into partnership. Matching the high standards of his companion, Jennett became well known and much respected, growing to be a man of power and influence. He became a magistrate and was mayor of Stockton three times.

The bridge shown on this token was the first bridge to serve the growing town of Stockton, it was a five arch stone bridge which was completed in 1769. Before the existence of the bridge at this location, the only way of crossing the Tees was by the Bishop’s Ferry. The bridge was subject to rent to the Bishop of Durham and the costs of building it had to be repaid, so a system of tolls was charged. These were supposed to be abolished as soon as the debt was cleared, but they remained in place until, in 1819, the local people took the law into their own hands, throwing two of the bridge gates into the river and burning the third gate in the High Street. Although the bridge was good news for Stockton’s business, it had a devastating impact on Yarm. As ships were growing in size at this time, the building of the bridge prevented many ships reaching Yarm because they were unable to navigate further up the river. This only heightened shipping in Stockton and affirmed its place as the main port on the Tees before the 1800s. The bridge also halted Yarm’s shipbuilding industry and, since Stockton was unaffected, yards sprang up east of the bridge towards the sea. By 1876 the old bridge was inadequate and in 1881 work was begun on a new bridge. This new bridge, named the ‘Victoria Bridge’ in recognition of Queen Victoria, was opened in 1887 and the old stone bridge was demolished.

Rev: + LADISLAVS RE (decaying legend), cross with wedges.

Struck in Esztergom. Struck ca. 1097-1105 (per Gyöngyössy, whose dating has not been accepted by later catalogers and appears to be speculative). Hóman hypothesized that the chronology of Coloman’s coinage can be determined via the progressively diminishing average weights of the emissions. By this hypothesis, this emission is ranked 7/15, and was struck in the middle of Coloman’s reign.

Faintich speculates that the spokes/bars on this coin are cometary symbols that may represent the comet of 1114, or possibly a comet of 1097, 1106 or 1109.

Huszár rarity 10, Toth-Kiss rarity 25, Unger rarity 50, Frynas rarity N. Unrecorded sigla, as confirmed via per personal email communication with József Géza Kiss on December 25, 2018.

Ladislaus/László I (1077-1095) was canonized in 1192. His name typically appeared, albeit in an increasingly decaying form, on the reverse of 12th century emissions such as this.

Velia was the Roman name of an ancient city of Magna Graecia on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea. It was founded by Greeks from Phocaea as Hyele around 538–535 BC. According to Herodotus, in 545 BC Ionian Greeks fled Phocaea, in modern Turkey, which was being besieged by the Persians under Cyrus the Great. They settled in Corsica until they were attacked by a force of Etruscans and Carthaginians. The surviving 6000 took to the sea once more, first stopping in Reggio Calabria, where they were probably joined by the poet/philosopher Xenophanes, who was at the time at Messina, and then moved north along the coast and founded the town of Hyele, later renamed Ele and then, eventually, Elea.

Elea was not conquered by the Lucanians, but eventually joined Rome in 273 BC and was included in ancient Lucania.

By 1077 he had proclaimed himself “emperor of all Spain” and his oppression of his Muslim vassals led to the invasion of Spain by an Almoravid army from North Africa in 1086.

RIC VI : 118

This coin was struck c.A.D.307 - 308, during Maximianus' short joint reign with Maxentius, to commemorate the rebuilding of the Temple of Venus and Rome and in conjunction with celebrations for the benefactions given to Rome and Carthage, Maxentius' principal bases of power. The Temple of Venus and Rome, thought to be that shown on this coin, was commissioned by Hadrian in A.D.121 and finished under Antoninus Pius in A.D.141. In A.D.283 a fire destroyed the roof, and the temple was rebuilt by Maxentius, who retained the original plan.
The existing remains of this temple are on the right side of the picture below.

A fairly rare Neptune type which is part of an early issue from Lyon (Lugdunum) struck in 70. Rome also minted the same type but the two can be distinguished by style and obverse legend. Style wise Lyon is known for its large headed portraits and neat, blocky legends. TR P (either I or II) is also recorded in the obverse legend, unlike at Rome. The reverse type also has a more ornate prow than Rome. Many Lyon denarius types are copied from those minted in Rome and are sometimes misattributed by less diligent cataloguers.
