tokens & icons

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. Soon Chicago approached us to do the same for them, and, before long, the Boston and the San Francisco Transit Authorities were under license and furnishing us with their tokens for products.

Thus the process of acquiring authentic artifacts and featuring them in classic designs of functional gifts has become our sweet spot. From authentic vintage typewriter keys to 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.

You can find these items, and more Tokens & Icons at The National.
