This is an unusual, and probable, post medieval love token, a heart formed from three hammered silver Elizabeth I sixpences. The coins are in very poor condition being almost totally rubbed out, however, there is clearly visible, the letters LIZA on the left coin on the facing side. The denomination is based on the coin size. The bent coin as a love-token may be derived from the well-recorded practice of bending a coin when making a vow to a saint. The bending a coin when one person made a vow to another was another practice which arose from this. From the traditional wedding rh…

A post-medieval lead-alloy token of 16th-century date (North 2063). The bifacially decorated disc is not quite circular, having a straight edge at one point of the circumference. North (1960, 112) notes that such pieces were probably medalets rather than tokens as some appear to relate to Mary, Queen of Scots. These rare pieces are normally found in London, and were struck about 1574 (ibid., 112). Examples can be also found illustrated in Fletcher (2003, 49).
