This Confederation era token dated 1787 is of unknown origin. The obverse resembles the bust left of the Connecticut copper. This token was probably intended for circulation in the American colonies, as the legends depict an anti-crown, pro-liberty sentiment.

The obverse features a bust facing left with the legend: "AUCTORI PLEBIS" (By the Authority of the People). The reverse shows a figure of Liberty quite similar to seated Britannia. The legend: "INDEP ET LIBER" (Independence and Liberty) is above the figure.

Numismatists that specialize in Colonial era coinage differ as to where these tokens were produced. They were, however, definitely intended for circulation in America during the period of the Confederation before the adoption of the Constitution.
