Kariba Casino - Named tokens
« on: July 16, 2017, 02:48:48 PM »
These opening promption tokens of the Kariba Casino in Zimbabwe are the only tokens I know having a personal name engraved. I have five of these, all with different names.

Does anybody know any other kind of tokens with a personal name mentioned at the token?

Nver seen one before. Quite a high denomination (I assume it is in USD, not is Zim dollars.) Maybe a premium for high stakes gamblers on opening night?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
