Tokens and Icons

For more than twenty years, Tokens & Icons, formerly Tokens & Coins, has been turning authentic, nostalgic materials into functional gifts. We started as the first licensee of the New York MTA with whom we continue to create cuff links from the iconic retired NY Subway tokens. Ward Wallau, founder and a self-proclaimed “authenticity hound,” gathered his crew of artisans to re-purpose authentic artifacts into functional, high quality gifts and collectibles.

In 2007 the company embraced sports nostalgia and this area has become a key focus of the business. In teaming with Major League Baseball, National Hockey League, and a growing list of top-ranked collegiate football and basketball programs, we have begun to forge a place for ourselves as the provider of authentic, licensed game-used gifts. We work directly with our licensors to obtain the source materials to ensure that the fan’s purchase is 100% authentic, guaranteed.
