W.C.S. Woods

Wooden tokens, or "woods" as they are colloquially known, are inexpensive and popular collectibles issued by organizations and individuals alike. Waterloo Coin Society has issued a wide variety of woods over the years to commemorate various events. A "common side" is also frequently made available to club members and other collectors to pair with their own design. When this is done, we always ask issuers to submit two (2) copies of their wood for the W.C.S. archives.

This page is a work-in-progress and is by no means exhaustive. Efforts are ongoing to continue adding to this page. If you have any authoritative information that appears to be missing, please contact the club secretary.

All Waterloo Coin Society woods designs are copyright © Waterloo Coin Society and may not be used for third-party woods unless specifically authorized. In particular, the W.C.S. logo may only be used on woods produced on behalf of and for the exclusive use of the Waterloo Coin Society.
