Romanian Jsac Focsaner Zionist coffee and tea house in Bucuresci 1 Leu token
28970207
Romania, Bucuresci (Hunedoara County, Transylvania) "Jsak [Isaac] Focşaner" Zionist coffee and tea house token for 1 Leu (ND), circa. early 1920's; struck in copper-nickel; no maker marks; weight: 4.1g; size: 25.5mm. Obverse bears narrowed Star of David with Hebrew word "Zion" in center, with Romanian legend around edge "Jsak Focşaner * Bucuresci *"; on reverse "1 Leu" in center. Medallic rotated strike; beeded edge on obverse and reverse. In VF with a slight clip missing from the top left - possibly manufactured that way. Schaffer BUC-651, rarity 5 (extreme rarity: 6-15pc) p.77.

Transylvania came under Romanian control following the Versailles treaty of 1920 (hence the estimated dating of this token); the city of Bucuresci (not to be confused with Bucuresti - Bucharest, the capital but spelled - oddly - on the token without the accented "ş") is located in Hunedoara country, which, according to Jewish history sources, was part of a region populated by Reform Jews desiring integration and assimilation, as opposed to the more Orthodox Jews in the rest of Romania who identified more with Zionism and emigration.

A possible reason for the word "Zion" appearing on this token lies with the proprietor's name, "Focsaner" - "of the city of Focşani": during the period of the first "Aliya" (immigration wave to Palestine of religious Jews, 1860-1903 - many sources even date the first Aliya from 1881), as a result of the influence of this unorganized movement, on 30-31 December 1881, the First Congress of all Zionist Unions in Romania for the promotion of settlement in Eretz Israel (Palestine) was held in the west Romanian city of Focşani. This congress, held 16 years before Dr. Theodore Herzl's First "World Zionist Organization" Congress in Basel (1897), had a major influence on Romanian Jews, and the coffee house proprietor, probably eschewing the significance of that event took the city's name as his own surname and promoted Zionism through his business work in the more Reform region of Hunedoara.

South African 2 Shilling Daniel & Hyman Jewish merchant token, Bloemfontein 1867

South Africa > Orange Free State: Jewish merchant 2 Shilling cupro-nickel token for "Daniel & Hyman" business of Bloemfontein, 1867; not maker-marked; size: 30mm; weight: 6.85g. Obverse bears "2/=" denomination in center and legend in Afrikaans "Goed Voor Daniel & Hyman". On reverse coat of arms of the Orange Free State, and legend in Afrikaans all around "Bloemfontein Oranje Vry Staat 1867". The partners Daniel and Hyman established their "Storekeepers and General Dealers" business on 1 January 1864, and issued these tokens to overcome a shortage of small change. These were a unique production as the city had been using cardboard "good for" tokens which quickly became damaged. One hundred pounds of these tokens were minted in 4 denominations for the business in 1867 by a Birmingham-based coinmaker but were quickly withdrawn by the company when cointerfeits appeared, making them now rare. Ref: Theron O1; Maynard M.2; Hern p.59. In VF.
