Tokens & Icons has been turning authentic, nostalgic artifacts into functional gifts for more than 20 years. The company was founded upon becoming one of the first licensees of the New York City MTA with whom we continue to create cuff links that feature the iconic retired NY Subway tokens. From authentic vintage typewriter keys to a Pan Am fuselage to Buffalo Nickels to watch movements from the early 20th century, Tokens & Icons aims to bring a new life and purpose to the memorable everyday objects of our past.
Tokens continues to identify cycled-out materials that have played an emotional role in our lives over time. Our goal is to design a way to keep the materials in circulation and be a functional gift that brings a smile to those gifted.
