1883 insane hospital

One amongst the many bizarre little treasures I've collected -

I can't find any info about currency marked "insane hospital" online. Any numismatists out there can help me out? It's stamped the same on the reverse too.

Wow, this is pretty fascinating. Do let us know if you find out any more information.

I work in an office which used to be a Victorian Mental Institution. It's beautiful, but sort of spooky at night, especially in the basement.
