This coin was privately minted in the US for the NYC Transportation Authority in the 1970s. Out of the various versions used, we feature the "Y" cutout version in this design. The ring's composition is brass and it is specially coated for the wearer to display this piece without skin irritation.

Tony Morano in Saturday Night Fever is often one of the first images that comes to mind when we think about 1970s New York City.
That, or Studio54, or Mary Tyler Moore tossing her hat between the skyscrapers, or Pacino robbing a bank on a Dog Day Afternoon, or... (insert your own hip '70 NYC memory here).
Back in the day, some of us got a pack of subway tokens each Monday morning so we could get to school for the week.
They certainly didn't seem like much of anything then, but today, those Large Y Tokens are hard to come by. And they make fantastic coin rings!
