At least part of it is found in the SCA Exchequer Branch Handbook  
(2007 pdf), which I downloaded from the Kingdom website.

bottom of page 32 and top of page 33
1. Metal Tokens or Artifacts
"Some kingdoms have organized minting, or coin-making activities. In  
order to stay clear of any civil laws regarding currency, we may only  
hand out or sell these tokens. We cannot honor them as currency,  
exchange them for modern currency, or otherwise treat them as  
currency.  Merchants may decide, on their own, to honor tokens as  
currency, but no merchant is required, nor can we require a merchant,  
to honor any such tokens as currency. (CP XI)"

Also involved is found on page 36
"A. Money may not be used in whole or in part to the benefit of  
private individuals or businesses."

Essentially, giving a token for admission to an event is giving money  
to a private individual.
