Because this website is in Dutch I've translated the introduction page.

Welcome on the website from Allex Kussendrager about :
beaconleads and lead tokens
or lead tokens with a (temporary) payment function

Port-, fire- and buoys leads; or leads relating to shipping in general.
These pieces relate to a form of taxation used to finance the conservation of such facilities as lighthouses, buoys and coastal lights, or to a form of toll for the various locks, bridges and other passages that were used by the shipping in general.


Lead tokens:
including personal and municipal arms, and pieces (méreaux) connected with the dispensation of charity to the poor.  Some of the latter entitled the bearer to a meal, and others to supplies of essential commodities; for example, bread, turf, wood, wine etc. These had a  certain limited exchange value, either implied or stated.

Armorial and charity tokens of the Walloon and Lutheran-Community
