Banks also issued tokens to encourage patronage. This generally occurred during the 1920s. Many of these were distributed much like the discount tokens described above, but other schemes were used.
One method involved the cast iron savings banks now popular with some collectors. When one of these banks was sold or given away, the banker would deposit a token in it to “seed” the savings compartment.
Banks also encased cents as a means of advertising. See my web page about Louisiana Encased Cents for advertising pieces used at some Louisiana Banks.
Reverse descriptions include “This Coin Worth 25¢ in opening a savings account”, Good During Banking Hours only”, 1 Cent Saving Check, Good For 50¢ on Account”.
