Love Tokens are the art of the underclass, first appearing in the mid 18th century. They were initially engraved by the giver on the currency halfpenny of the period. Out of these developed the sailor's farewells and valentines and subsequently the convict love token. These were produced in prison prior to transportation to Australia.
