During the 18th and 19th centuries, mothers leaving their children at the Foundling Hospital customised coins and other objects, which they hoped would help to reunite them in future. Southbank Centre's Archive Studio presents a display of the original tokens on loan from the Foundling Museum, alongside interpretations by young people from the Coram charity, exploring what they reveal about collecting and family identity.
