Officially licensed by the New York MTA. For more than 20 years now, the NYCTA, now known as the MTA, provided Tokens & Icons with thousands of transit tokens directly from its depository. Receipts and documents for each purchase of tokens are kept on file at Tokens & Icons' headquarters. All items created have gone through a stringent approval process by the MTA. The entire collection is also offered for sale in the two NY Transit Museum Stores in New York. Given this longstanding relationship, you can be 100% confident with the authenticity of your purchase.
