Obverse of Kentucky Token - "Lancaster" Edge      Reverse of Kentucky Token - "Lancaster" Edge


Obverse: "UNANIMITY IS THE STRENGTH OF SOCIETY" surrounds a hand holding a scroll that reads, "OUR CAUSE IS JUST"

Reverse: "E PLURIBUS UNUM" above a fifteen star pyramid in rays of glory.  Each of the stars bears the initial of one of the fifteen United States existing at the time.  The top star bears the letter "K" (for Kentucky - the fifteenth State), hence the name of the token.
