Victorian Era Love Token Coins gained popularity in England during the celebrated monarchs of Queen Victoria from 1837 to 1901. Crowned at the tender age of 18 the young royal stole the country's heart with her affectionate and enchanting courtship and marriage to Prince Albert.
Bestowed by a gentleman to his lady love, the coins were most often engraved by hand with the suitor's initials. Fashionable throughout the entirety of Queen Victoria's six decade reign, women across Europe and America adorned the sentimental keepsakes in abundance, wearing them as pins, pendants and bracelets.
Each as unique as the love they honor, the centuries-old objects of affection and adoration are revered by collectors as much for their scarcity as for their symbolism. Today, the cherished keepsakes remain celebrated reminders of romance, love and the awe-inspiring intrinsic connection between sweethearts that has been coveted since the dawn of time.
