Superb c. 1875 Love Token
“MR & MRS”- “BLISS”
Wedding Gift
Antique Silver Coin Charm


This spectacular Love Token features an artistically rendered hand-engraved wedding motif of two hands embraced. The hands are encircled by an elaborate period border and floral flourishes.
This extraordinary love token charm is lovingly and artistically engraved “Mr & Mrs” - “Bliss”. This was likely presented as a wedding gift c.1875, wishing the newlyweds a blissful future.

The coin itself is a USA Seated Liberty Dime. This miniature masterpiece measures about ¾” in diameter and has a deep rich patina.

Love Tokens are symbols of affection that were given as wedding gifts, birthday gifts or as “tokens of love" by suitors. Love tokens are circulated coins on which one side, or sometimes both have been smoothed and then engraved with initials, names, phrases or scenes.This tradition probably originated in Great Britain in the early 1800's, and migrated to the United States in the mid to late 1800's. Many where fashioned from dimes. A dime may not seem like much money. Consider, however, that hourly wage rates of five cents or less were common during the heyday of love tokens.

This charm is from the estate of Joan Munkacsi. Joan, of A Charmed Existence, was an avid and extremely knowledgeable collector and seller of vintage charms and charm bracelets. We miss her.
