Coins have long played their part in romantic rituals with many traditions stretching back centuries. The ‘love token’ is one such tradition.
A love token is a coin that has been smoothed down and hand-engraved with names or sentimental messages.
Love tokens are given as a sign of affection, to be kept and cherished, and they have been carried for luck for centuries. Some love tokens can be attached to jewellery.
Precious metal coins, particularly silver coins, became associated with romantic traditions because giving them away represented an act of real sacrifice for the one you love.
If you are looking for a unique way to show your love this February, choose to combine love and money by choosing a beautiful coin from The Royal Mint that perfectly reflects your sentiments. While many other gifts are temporary, a coin lasts forever, and isn’t that what we want most from true love?
