Egyptian token, Omar Khayyam Casino
« on: August 02, 2008, 07:28:19 PM »
White, non-magnetic metal. Both sides are the same. I have two versions: 25.1 m and 5.6 grams and 27.0 mm and 9.6 grams.

The Omar Khayyam Casino is in the Cairo Marriot hotel. Islam does not condone gambling.

Peter,

congratulations to own two different variations of this type of token. I only have the piece of 25 mm diameter. All the different types are reported by our member Paul Baker on his excellent site:

Hope that Paul will not be angry with me to beat him to it  ;)

Regards
Dietmar

Great! One is a quarter, the other a dollar. I should learn to check Paul's site first ;D

Next time I update my Africa tokens pages at....

I expect to add a number of other images of Egyptian casino tokens - mainly Cairo. Thanks to some recent assistance. Further details will be available nearer the time.

Thanks Mr Paul Baker
