Modern world, meet the most romantic accessory, the “love token.” Love tokens are coins where one side (or sometimes both sides) has been smoothed down and engraved with initials, names, phrases and/or scenes. These were often given to young ladies as “tokens of love” by suitors. In the late 18th and 19th centuries, love tokens were common. Coins personalized for a sweetheart were given as an expression of love and often as a proposal of marriage.
We recently discovered these tokens and have been swept away by their romance. A by gone era, a love shared between two people, a precious gift that has stood the test of time. Looking for that special vintage gift – I think you’ve found it!
