Tokens are items that can be exchanged for goods from Brinks, Sullivan, or Holiday Vendors (Like Maskwell for Dark Harvest Festival). There are currently three types of tokens: tokens found in Treasure Boxes in the Clockworks, tokens after defeating a boss, and tokens from participating in the Coliseum. You cannot trade tokens.
Similar to crowns and heat, each player in the party gets one treasure box token for each treasure box token that is picked up.
After a boss monster is defeated, a boss token is dropped. When touched by a knight, the boss token spins and disappears in a flash of light, leaving the knights with a number of tokens depending on how many levels within the boss stratum they participated in. The following types of tokens can be obtained this way:
The amount of Tokens you receive is highly dependent on where your starting expedition is and what location it is. Normal Bosses will give out one to four Tokens based on your starting point where-as Shadow Lair Bosses will give twice the normal amount; six to eight.
On a regular completion, the player will receive three Tokens on a full expedition but sometimes they will earn a fourth!

Treasure Box Tokens
When a treasure box is broken, there is a chance that a "spark" token can be dropped. The type of token dropped will match either the monster theme or the status theme of the level (which means most levels can drop two kinds of sparks); Treasure Vaults can drop all types of sparks. The following types of tokens can be found in treasure boxes:
A coin issued by the great King Krogmo to participants in his Coliseum. It can be exchanged for prizes from the Coliseum Rewards Supervisor.
Any Coliseum game played to completion will earn the participant 1 Krogmo Coin. This may be increased up to 7 Krogmo Coins by using the Krogmo Coin Boosters. Winning a match will earn the winning player or winning team an additional Krogmo Coin. Krogmo coins can be traded for special prizes from Sullivan, the Coliseum Rewards Supervisor found in the Haven Arcade.
A piece of candy made to celebrate the Dark Harvest Festival. It can be exchanged in the Haven Town Square for various costume masks. All candy expires when the Dark Harvest Festival ends.
During the Dark Harvest Festival in-game event during October, candy tokens may be obtained from the Punkin King or purchased from Bulky. They can be traded for special costume helmets from Maskwell. These tokens expire at the end of the Dark Harvest Festival. The Brittle Candy is dropped by Grim Gourdlings, which come out of the heads of defeated Grim Scarabs.
A tiny wishlist created by one of the children of Emberlight. It signifies that you fulfilled their holiday wishes and saved Winterfest. Doesn't that just fill you with cheer?
During the Winterfest event in December, special tokens may be obtained from the Event Mission: Save Winterfest!. They can be traded for special costume helmets and items from Randolph. These tokens expire at the end of Winterfest.
These tokens are found in Mysterious Rooms in the arcade during Winterfest.
During the Caketastrophe in-game event celebrating the first, second, and third anniversaries of Spiral Knights, Cake Slices could be obtained by completing the Total Caketastrophe! prestige mission or by purchasing them from Bulky. During Caketastrophe the Cake Slices could be traded for a special costume helmet from Maskwell. The tokens expired after the event.
A crumbling page torn from a long-forgotten grimoire of the Moorcroft Manor archives. The indecipherable language written upon it glows faintly in the dark as if containing power in its very words.
Ancient Pages that have been recovered from the stomach of the Black Kats or a reward from the Prestige Missions That Mold and Black Magic, Bad Luck and Brimstone, and Purr Terror during the Kataclysmic Confrontation event.
An otherworldly brand placed upon a soul claimed by the mysterious Apocrea. Removing it allows the captured soul to escape imprisonment within the terrible realm of the Apocrea.
During a limited time, Apocrean Sigils can be obtained by beating the prestige mission Shroud of the Apocrea. The Apocrean Sigils can be traded for special bounded materials to use in the Obelisk of Creation, a special alchemy machine.
