Description:A copper farthing token coin advertising William Dixon's Tea Warehouse, Newcastle-under-Lyme. Dixon's Warehouse stood on the High Street and was established in 1799.

During the 19th century it was common for publicans, licencees and shopkeepers to issue their own tokens or 'checks'. Most of the checks issued in Staffordshire were made by Birmingham and Black Country diesinkers and stamping workshops. They could be spent on goods sold at the named shop, and they also served as advertisements for the business.

Obverse: 'VICTORIA REGINA'. Profile of Victoria.
Reverse: 'WILLIAM DIXON, NEWCASTLE COUNTY TEA HOUSE'.
