Description

The hole was to put it on your keychain. The good luck stuff was the reason you put it on. I remember a candy store that sold dried rabbit’s feet with a loop to put on your keychain. For luck. Plus the insurance guy gets his name remembered every time the guy takes out his keys.

A token is used like a coin but is not a coin. Rather, it stands for a coin without the value of the coin. Maybe its copper, but says its value is the same as a silver coin. Usually tokens were made privately, but sometimes governments got involved.
