A Superb Antique 18th Century Scottish Communion Token Dated 1743.
The communion token became a part of Reformed and Presbyterian Lord’s Supper practice. Those who wanted to take the Lord’s Supper, which was often practiced during an annual communion season, would be interviewed by the session, elders, and if found to be worthy they would be given a token. So, when the communicant went to be served the elements in the service the token was given to the administrating minister or elder. They were commonly used in Scotland and when Scots and Scots-Irish Presbyterians emigrated to America they took their use of communion tokens with them.
