Oz on the fairground
« on: April 16, 2019, 01:42:10 PM »
Just so that they are registered somewhere, these cropped up in a small lot. They are gaming tokens from Elaut, a US producer of gaming machines. They are used in a classic "bulldozer" game, where a few twists are added. See a demo featuring the tokens here:


Both tokens are 35 mm. The general theme of the tokens is "The wizard of Oz". The red token shows the ruby slippers. The green one show the yellow brick road, leading to Emerald City. As the video shows, the machine may contain other tokens also.

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

Other machines by Elaut are found in the UK and no doubt elsewhere. See below an image of an Elaut machine in Wales

I have other types as shown below, but am keen to obtain the red shoes version.

The family group is reminiscent of the Great Yarmouth tokens using the same image.

the last piece shown is consimilar Cu-ni, 25mm
