Blue and red plastic “beer” token issued by Molson Canadian to mark the 50th anniversary of the Games.
Beer tokens date back to the pre industrial age, they have been largely replaced by paper tickets. Molson holds pride of place when it comes to beer tokens, during the Lower Canadian Rebellions, their tokens were actually used as official coin as there was a shortage.
