It took 11 years for Tokens & Icons to become the first licensee of the New York Transit Authority in 1991. 23 years later Tokens continues to produce new styles under license to the MTA, your assurance of authenticity.
From 2007-2012, the MTA worked to restore the marble floor of Grand Central Terminal. In order to perfectly match the new tile to the existing slabs, the Transit Authority persuaded the quarry of the original Tennessee pink marble to reopen for this project after it had been closed for nearly 30 years. The marble used for this jewelry is from the slabs that were replaced. Please visit the NY MTA's site to learn more about the restoration.
