The history of Monopoly's most popular piece

Monopoly Golden Token - HASBRO

Hasbro is shaking things up with one its most popular board games, Monopoly. On Facebook, Hasbro is asking the public to vote on a brand new piece — the choices are a moustached robot, a diamond ring, a cat, a helicopter, and a guitar — to replace one of the classics. Jalopnik has taken the opportunity to defend the car token, of course, which has gone through several transformations and wasn't even present in the first version of the game. From nonexistent to a miniature model of what Jalopnik suspects is a 1940s Kurtis Kraft Midget race car, the tiny metal token has evolved greatly since the game was first published in the 1930s.
