In the early 1990s casino strikes began to appear. These are coins, or more properly, tokens, that were intended to be collected. However, they were redeemable for their face value. Currently, there are no longer available at most, if not all, casinos, due to the increase in the price of silver. The most common denomination, the ten dollar strike, frequently contained about six-tenths of a Troy ounce of fine silver.
These were usually limited edition strikes that had silver as the primary metal. Indeed, many also carry a mint mark, and have the casino’s name and an associated image on the obverse, and an artistic image on the reverse.
The usual denominations include the seven dollar, the ten dollar, the twenty dollar, the twenty-eight dollar, the forty dollar, the one hundred dollar, and the two hundred dollar face values.
