Since its foundation in 1964 the role of The Token Society of Great Britain has been to encourage and support the study, appreciation and preservation of Japanese Swords, sword Fittings and associated artefacts within the UK.


Welcome to the Token Society of Great Britain. Since its foundation The Society has grown to be one of the largest Japanese sword societies to exist outside of Japan. Our aim is to share our interest and enthusiasm, to help each other to learn, appreciate and care for swords, fittings and other related artefacts. . We enjoy a diverse membership so whether you are an experienced collector or just starting your journey in to the subject you would be very welcome to join us.
