Especially in difficult times, Londoners have found alternative ways of doing business by creating their own currencies. Read more about the items on display, from suffragette pennies to digital pounds.
This display highlights the people, politics and design of alternative London currencies from the 17th century to present. On these currencies we meet inspiring Londoners – from a disabled street hawker to a proud refugee turned international sports star. We find independent women and heartbreaking messages. Highlights include a suffragette defaced penny, extremely rare 17th century leather tokens and a one hour note from Robert Owen’s 1832 Labour Exchange. New acquisitions on show include Spice Time Credit notes and the Brixton Pound.
