Are you using tokens, or actual old pennies?

...but why would anyone keep old pennies in stacks of TEN?
From a commercial perspective I need to charge £1 for 10 coins. This way in the event that people walk off with them instead of play them in the machines I am not out of pocket. They are in effect playing with 10 pence per coin.

Already established this ?? !PUZZLED!

I presume Brigham is referencing the artwork copy "20 old penny tokens" rather than "20 old pennies".
Maybe tokens reference "assists" camouflaging any license/permit issues.

I was merely curious.
I had thought that the intention was to use real pennies; then I saw the reference to 'tokens'.
There WERE penny tokens, back in the day. You sometimes found the occasional one in your winnings.
I had two; one which said 'Good for Free Play in Machine', and another which, rather abruptly, said 'No Value'.
I never thought to keep them. they were a bit of a swizz, really!
