According to Breton, "the checker club that had been in existence for ten years, was amalgamated with the chess club in 1891, and the annual subscription was fixed at $3.00. It was decided to have a Jeton de presence or admission ticket struck in copper. The commission was entrusted to Dr. J. Leroux to order 100 of the above Jeton."
