1 Cent Token and Silver

Back to a site I hadn’t been to in a while, but it often gives up the goods, tho like most, it is thinning as well.  It did give up a pair of dimes, and this odd token, a 1 cent coupon for a food store in Philly. It dates from the 50s or 60s, and rang up like a silver dime (tho I believe it is base metal).

Who goes to the trouble of creating a token for 1 cent?

This is only the second vintage token I’ve ever found (I don’t count Chuck-E-Cheese and modern transit tokens).  The other was the Baltimore one from just the other day.
