More Information
What's the Story On July 25, 1953, the subway fare increased to 15 cents. Since turnstiles could not accept both nickels and dimes, the token was introduced. The first token was the size of a dime and made of solid brass. Measuring .650 inches in diameter, the "Y" cut out of its center made it easy to recognize by touch. This token remained in use after the fare was raised to 20 cents in 1966 and it's distinctive design quickly became a New York City icon.
