MONOPOLY tokens have been a key element of the game since it was introduced in 1935. The car, thimble, boot, top hat and battleship were among the original set of MONOPOLY tokens while the Scottie dog and wheelbarrow were added in the early 1950s. In 2013, fans voted the cat token as the newest Monopoly game piece while the iron token was retired after receiving the lowest number of fan votes.
