150th Throwback — Keychains

Given their name, you’d think “keychains” would only be for keys – but they are so much more, often considered personal treasures, used as promotional items, and of course functional items that keep all of our keys in one secure place.

From luck tokens to holding our keys

Keychains date back centuries and originally started as luck tokens in ancient civilizations. The small trinkets were believed to protect or bestow good luck. For example, the “lucky rabbit foot” we know today is based on the real rabbit feet carried by the Celts in 600 BC.

The popularity of keychains started to rise with the growth of tourism and the invention of battery-powered cars. Since then, keychains have become available in various forms and are still widely used as souvenir items and promotional gifts.

Bringing the penny back to your pocket

In 1973, Jewett City Savings Bank released a penny keychain in honor of its 100th anniversary. For its 150th anniversary, the Bank replicated the coin keychain and is distributing it at special events throughout the year.
