    Modern Video Arcade tokens or Game Tokens and the machines they were used in started springing up in the late 1970s and were most popular during the golden age of arcade games, the mid-1980s.

    During this time, arcades were so popular in the United States that school children could easily pass one or two on their way to or from school.

    Arcades are not limited to video games only, though. Pinball machines and redemption games such as skee ball are also common in many arcades. There may be a counter where players can redeem the tickets earned at the latter for prizes ranging from free tokens, cheap toys to dolls and jewelry.

    The video games are typically in arcade cabinets. The most common kind are uprights, tall boxes with a monitor and controls in front. Customers insert coins or tokens into the machines and stand in front of them to play the game. These traditionally were the most popular arcade format, although presently American arcades make much more money off deluxe driving games and ticket redemption games.

    In the beginning Video Arcades made tokens with their company name and some times with a city and state. These arcades were more of a "Mom and Pop" type company located in small town America. However over the years large chains such as Chuck E Cheese have driven the small arcades out of business and now use a generic type tokens to operate machines. Older Chuck E. Cheese game tokens are a very popular today due to the fact that they had the location (city and state) on the tokens.

    Arcade tokens are usually very low in price and a great starter colection. If you love arcade games either at the local mall or on the Internet, start a collection of arcade game tokens today.
