Tokens and medals such as this that featured the female royalty would serve as beacons of fashion for the women of society. Women would closely study how the Royals would do their hair and how they dressed to keep up with the fashion of the time. Great detail has been worked into this token on the hair in particular, showing each individual curl, and small pearls tucked within.
