H E tokens of the P a r y s Mines Company m a y well be considered the " p r e m i e r tokens of the E i g h t e e n t h C e n t u r y — t h e first, chronologically; a long way the first by the quantity issued : Charles Pye states t h a t at least '250 tons of pennies, and about 50 tons of halfpence.

Issued as they were, by a copper m i n i n g company, which had its existence as a n outcome of the natural talent of a silk twist m a n u f a c t u r e r , Charles Roe, of Macclesfield, and his partners in the copper industry, viz., Robert Hodson, Brian Hodson, Roland Atkinson, J o h n Walker, Joseph Stockdale, and Cookson Atkinson; the tokens have also a sentimental interest, by reason of their association with the P a r y s M i n e ; the story of which, and of the discovery of the vein of copper as n a r r a t e d in the Universal Directory of 1790, is as follows:— ( iii )

THE

PARYS

MINE

IN

1913.

" At Trysclwyn mountain, is the most considerable body of copper-ore perhaps ever known. The part of Trysclwyn which contains it is called Parys Mountain. In the year 1762, Alexandei Frazier came into Anglesey in search of mines. " He visited Parys Mountain; called on Sir Nicholas Bayley, and gave him so flattering an account of the project, as induced him to make a trial, and sink shafts. Ore was discovered, but before any quantity could be gotten, the mines were overpowered with water. " In about two years after, Messrs. Roe and Co. of Macclesfield, applied to Sir Nicholas for a lease of Penrhyn-ddu mine in Caernarvonshire; with which they were, much against their wills, compelled to take a lease of part of this mountain, and to carry on a level, and make a fair trial.

profits.

" The trial was accordingly made, ore was discovered, but the expenses overbalanced the They continued working at great loss, and at length determined to give the affair up.

" T h e y gave their agent orders for that purpose, but he, as a final attempt, divided his men into ten several companies of three or four in partnership, and let them sink shafts in various places, about 800 yards eastwards of a place called the Golden \ enture, on a piesumption that a spring, which issued from near the place, must come from a body ot mineral. " His conjecture was right, for in less than two days, they met with, at the depth of seven feet from the surface, the solid material, which proved to be that vast body which has since been worked to such advantage.

" The day of the discovery was March '2nd, 1768, which has ever since been observed as a festival by the miners. " Soon after this discovery, another adventure was begun by the Rev. Mr. Edward Hughes, owner of part of the mountain, in right of his wife, Mary Lewes, of Lilys Dulas; so that the whole of the treasure is the property of Sir Nicholas Bayley and himself. " The thickness has been ascertained by driving a level under, in some places twentyfour yards." In addition to the blocks of actual copper-ore, the water which was impregnated with copper, was at that time, as is now the practice, run into rectangular wooden tanks, some thirty-six feet long by twelve to fifteen feet wide, by twenty inches deep, in which is scrap iron of any kind; this attracts the copper, and as the iron rusts away, yellow ochre is formed. A striking feature of the Parys Mine is the vast open "quarry," for as such it appeared when visited by the writer in 1909 and again in 1913. There are two mines : one was the property of Lord Uxbridge, this was known as the Mona Mine; the other, viz., the Parys Mine, was the joint property of Lord Uxbridge and the Rev. Edward Hughes. At that time, about 1200 miners were employed, who worked by the piece, and earned from one shilling, to twenty-pence per day. ( v )

In the church are some tablets to members of the family who held important positions. On one of the oldest dated stones is the following :—" John Parrie Gent, interred the 1 day November 1620. Richard Parry, Gent, interred Aug 30, 1662. Robert Parry Esq was interred 5 of October 1686." These references are interesting, as the Parys Mountain received its name from Robert Parys, the Chamberlain of North Wales in the time of Henry IV; he is said to have lived at the old house Madyn, above the doorway of which is a quaintly carved device, dated 1520. The names of three persons appear on the lettered-edge of the patterns from dies by Milton—viz., that of the Rev. Edward Hughes, to whom mention has already been made, and whose portrait, and that of his wife, are, by the kindness of the Lady Neave, of Llys Dulas, here illustrated; that of Thomas Williams, formerly an attorney at Llanedan, and Member of Parliament for Great Marlow, Bucks., afterwards for Anglesey; also John Dawes. Parys Lodge is stated by the Rev. T. Prichard, of Amlwch, to have been the residence of some of the agents of the mine. Possibly it was used as the office at the time of the issue of the tokens ; ( vii )


though the writer of the " Bazaar Notes " refers to it as the local residence of the Rev. Edward Hughes ; another residence was Greenfield Hall, near Holywell. The word " G R E E N F I E L D appears on the edge-reading of a very rare variety of halfpenny. According to the writer of the "Bazaar Notes," the lease of Messrs. C. Roe and Co. expired about 1792. Charles Roe, the leading partner in the " Company " was a remarkable man ; Christ Church, Macclesfield, was built at his expense. In the chancel is a very fine memorial tablet to his memory, which is here illustrated; the inscription is as follows:— WHOSOEVER WHOM

Memorial Tablet to Mrs. Roe, in Christ Church, Macclesfield. ( ix )


As regards the tokens dated 1784, there was, at the time the " Bazaar Notes " were published, some difference of opinion as to whether they should be regarded as genuine specimens, or as fabricated ones. As no notice of such a token appears in the Gentleman's Magazine till 1787 when a full description is given, and an illustration—the probability is, those dated 1784 were not struck till a later date when collections were being formed, and when this would appear as an " unpublished" date. The Rev. W. R. Hay. M.A., Vicar of Rochdale, in a manuscript note, states, in reference to the very rare variety—with the names of Edward Hughes, Thomas Williams, and John Dawes, around the edge—"This, commonly called the Monogram Penny, was, I believe, the first attempt made for an Anglesea coin ; it was executed by Milton, in the Tower, and after a very few were struck, the die of the monogram was broken." In another note he states—" Mr. Collins, of Maize Hill, Greenwich, a gentleman much employed by the Parys Mines Company, made a drawing of the 4 3D Penny, and sent the design to Hancock. This was the second; the monogram was the first of all, which was probably designed by Mr. Collins. Mr. Hay adds—" I believe the 1 I D ' Pennies were never put into circulation, but were given as presents." The statement that " the ' Monogram P e n n y ' was executed by Milton, in the Tower," is somewhat erroneous. Milton engraved the dies, but the tokens were struck by Westwood ; it was the fact of the failure of the die, which gave young Westwood the opportunity to make the imitation tokens which so closely resemble the originals. Charles Pye informs us that be also "fabricated a halfpenny for sale." This is the one with the same edge-reading as the penny, from dies by Milton, viz., Edw. Hughes, etc. ; also that Hancock was the die-sinker for the pennies of 1787 and 1788, and all the halfpennies, 1788, 1789, 1790 and 1791, except those of the heavy design, and with short letters of the monogram. All were manufactured at a Mint erected by the Parys Mines Co. in Birmingham. The pennies of 1790, having on the reverse ANGLESEY MINES PENNY, and the heavily designed halfpenny—all of which have as an edge-reading, PAYABLE X IN X LONDON X OR X ANGLESEY —were from dies by Wilson, and manufactured by Williams; both die-sinker and manufacturer were of London. The beauty of the designs, and the artistic finish of the workmanship oi the patterns, place them far above any regal copper currency. The quiet dignity of the features of the Druid as depicted on the obverse of the ID pennies, is pleasing to contemplate; surrounded as it is by a particularly realistic representation of an oak wreath, it suggests a period when Anglesey was the home of the Druids. The pattern of 1787, with the large head, presents a striking specimen of the die-sinker's art, in very high relief, so much so, as to be unsuitable lor currency. The Anglesey Mines Penny of 1790 has a smaller type of head, within a well designed thin wreath; this is extremely rare. There is a very close copy with " w " on the truncation of bust; the obverse die for this token was used with several others to make mules. A very beautiful specimen, with a head in bold relief, has a different type of reverse; the first stroke of m is used as the down stroke of P, and the last, as the curve forming c. On the downstrokes of the monogram, in minute letters, incuse, are the words, PARYS MINES COMPANY. The lightness, and symmetry of the design class it " a thing of beauty." ( x )


A specimen not mentioned by Cornier, Pye or Sharp, dated 1788, has the monogram /' M S. The final letter is formed of one thin curved line, and may possibly be intended to be the final letter of "Mines " ; the â&#x20AC;˘' Co." being entirely omitted. They only appear as patterns. Even the currency specimens, where the design is in lower relief, appealed so strongly to the public, that the "tokens were readily accepted; in fact, when copper advanced in value, they were worth more to melt up than to pass on as currency. The proofs of the halfpence command the attention of collectors, equally with those of the pennies, some very beautiful specimens of the die-sinker's art appearing in the patterns. On the undated ones, also on those of 1787, one of 1788, 1789 and 1792, the initials on the reverse, take more of the actual form of a monogram, than on those where each letter is, of itself, perfectly formed ; the inscribed monograms represent very special die-sinking, viz., the cutting of the small letters on the die, rather than in it, by removing the surrounding material, and thus leaving the letters expressed. The pattern for 1792 is particularly fine. As with the dies of the pennies, so with those of the halfpennies, others were used to strike mules, to sell to collectors. The half halfpence are from dies by Westwood; they, and all the mules of the farthings, were manufactured by Skidmore, for sale to collectors. Probably, the Anglesey farthings with O B on the reverse, were made to sell to any who wished to buy small change, of such a character as would not be likely to be returned to them for redemption.

WALES. There is no information as to who were the issuers of the tokens of North and South Wales, although several tons were struck; probably they were sold to any who wished to have tokens to pay, but for the return of which they would not be responsible. John Morgan, of Carmarthen, Iron-master and Tin-plate Manufacturer, issued five tons of his tokens. The artist's proofs are exceedingly rare. The Bangor token is not regarded as a currency specimen ; it was probably made for sale by Gorton. The Glamorgan tokens were from dies by J. S. Jordan, of Birmingham, for his father, John Jordan, Victualler, of Weaman Street, Birmingham. One ton were struck ; only a few specimens were struck of the rare variety, as the die broke, a Haw being visible by the crown on the obverse. In comparing the obverse of the rare variety with that of the common variety, it will be found that the common variety was the first to be struck ; then the obverse die was softened, and the small additions made on each side of the dot, or period, at the beginning and end of the legend. There are also some small die-flaws by the date on the obverse, which establish the fact that the die was altered before the rare variety was struck. The reverse die also was softened and altered ; the pedestal, on which a crown appears, was erased, and one with a square top substituted ; on close examination, the top of the crown is still to be seen above the top of the pedestal; a rope has been added extending from the top of the mast, to the knee of the female. A dot appears on each side of the date in exergue. (

)


The writer of the " Bazaar Notes " has a long and interesting statement as to the history of Jestyn ap Gurgan, the last Prince and Lord of Glamorgan of British blood. The King or Prince of Glamorgan formerly paid tribute to the King of North Wales as superior Regulus, but subsequently to the King of London, or Supreme Lord of Britain. Jestyn, having obtained the aid of Robert Fitzhamon against Rhys ap Tewdwr, a prince of South Wales, was victorious ; but, as Fitzhamon then turned on his ally and conquered him, he became Lord of Glamorgan. Jestyn fled, and, it is said, died in the Monastery of Llangenys, in Monmouthshire. The legend on the reverse is intended to mean " The King by Law.' should have been " c."

The letter " G

The writer of the " Bazaar Notes " i s in error in thinking that the reverse die broke, and that the " second one " had a crown on the pedestal; for, as already has been shown, there was only one obverse die, and one reverse, both being softened and altered after the ton of tokens had been struck. The tokens of John Voss, of Swansea, present a view of the Castle, built towards the close of the 14th century. The Key on the reverse may have some reference to the Key of the ruins of the Castle, for one of the only two issuers of 17th century tokens of Swansea—Matthew Davies—had a lease granted of the Castle, for the period of the lives of three children, at an annual rental of 40 shillings. There is another reason assigned for the appearance of the Key on the reverse of the token, viz., that it was the trade sign of John Voss, who was a draper and mercer, in the Market Square, at the sign of the Golden Key; and still another—that Swansea was the " Key of England." A view of the Castle and also a representation of the " Key silver tokens of John Voss, issued in 1811.
