This classic Victorian love token was once a threepence coin which has been rubbed down on one side and engraved with the name Lizzie. Still bearing the profile of Queen Victoria to the other side it has a loop added for suspension and is offered by Sandys Vintage Charms for £85.

Victorian love tokens can vary widely, some ornately and professionally engraved with additional decoration, others completed more simply at home. They also reflect changing fashions in names: on the site in question are tokens dedicated to Ernest, Alick and (notably returning to popularity) Millicent.

Along with Victorian love tokens, the site offers a range of antique and vintage charms in gold, silver and glass and there is free shipping within the UK and for orders over £100 worldwide.
