Tokens, Encasements

 

An “Encased Coin” is a coin, frequently a cent, that has been forcibly inserted into an aluminum blank or an encasement of other composition. Then it is placed into a press that squeezes the ring to hold the coin tight and adds advertisements and other elements to the encasement. Frequently one side will have a slogan such as “Keep Me and Have Good Luck”. Hence these cents were called “lucky pennies”. These were sold to businesses as advertising pieces, and as souvenir pieces. They were usually customized with advertising slogans, telephone numbers, names, and addresses.
