TokensDirect

Cincinnati, Ohio 

TokensDirect is a division of Osborne Coinage Co., America’s oldest private mint. With over 1.5 million tokens in over 250 designs, sizes, and metals, TokensDirect is the largest token supplier in the Americas. 

What’s News/Best Seller • High-Security Tokens.

Advantages/Features • Using tokens rather than quarters or cash to activate start cycles or extend-time at car washes can help eliminate theft and vandalism, especially in unattended areas where these problems are most prevalent. Often the repairs required to replace faceplates and coin mechanisms when thieves break into coin boxes far exceed the value of the cash loss. A variety of options allow car wash owners to select the tokens which best suit their needs — from standard brass tokens to replace quarters, to those minted with the establishment’s name and logo valued at $1 or more, to high-security tokens which eliminate the threat of cross-acceptance. Available in standard designs for immediate shipment, or in custom designs featuring the car wash logo and marketing message, in brass, bronze, and other metals.
