A hobby organization that celebrates taxes, or at least exonumia connected to taxes, celebrates a milestone anniversary this year.

In 1971, the American Tax Token Society was created by numismatists who share an interest in collecting Depression-era tokens. This year is the 50th anniversary of the group and to commemorate the occasion, each member of the organization was given a Missouri 1-mill tax token.

Membership is open to anyone interested in collecting or learning about tax tokens. Dues cost $8.50 per year for an electronic version of the group’s quarterly newsletter, while dues are $17 for a printed newsletter. The fee may be paid via Paypal to or by check payable to Jim Calvert and mailed to 769 Bracken Lane, Nipomo, CA 93444.
