Tokens & Icons was founded upon becoming one of the first licensees of the New York City MTA and continues to create jewelry and accessories that feature the iconic retired NY Subway tokens. Soon Chicago approached Tokens & Icons to do the same for them, and, before long, Boston and San Francisco were under license and providing tokens for products.
In 2007 Tokens & Icons began the Collector's Transit Token Series to celebrate the transit histories of America's mid-sized cities. Many of the bus, trollies and rail systems for which these tokens were once minted are now defunct. Once currency, these tokens are rare and hard-to-find mementos and, therefore, the cuff links in this collection are often subject to availability.
