The National Museum of Australia has 314 convict love tokens in its collection. These tokens were made by convicts around the time of their sentencing and were given to friends and loved ones as mementos.  Eighty tokens from the Museum's collection are on show in the Journeys gallery. The entire collection, the world's largest, can be explored online.
