Canada, Tokens of Toronto Transit Commission

In the 1980s, commuters used tiny aluminium-alloyed tokens to ride the Toronto Transit.

Tiny tokens like these were cheap to produce but easy to misplace. If they were misplaced or lost and never to be found, I guess the Toronto Transit would consider that as service rendered and money paid for nothing.

I don't have any idea as to how long this kind of tokens had been used by commuters and how many of these tokens had been lost and never been found.

Nowadays I wonder this kind of novelty idea of using tokens for train rides is still relevant.
