            1966 Franklin Proof Tokens

By 1966, silver dollars had completely disappeared from circulation, and more casinos turned to private issue gaming tokens.  By mid-year, every major casino in the Las Vegas area, and nearly all the other big casinos had ordered their own tokens.   By the fall of 1966, the Franklin Mint had reached its limit for the year, 72 different gaming tokens.  This included 64 casinos in Nevada, and 8 international casinos.  Unlike 1965, every token issued by the Franklin Mint in 1966 was the same standard size.  Each token had a unique reeding pattern around the edge.  This helped casinos identify their own tokens.     

Along with the regular run of these Dollar Gaming Tokens, which varied from 10,000 to 325,000 pieces, most of the casinos ordered 500 proofs in individual coin holders,  In addition, there was a limited run of 3,100 complete Proof-Like sets, consisting of specially handled specimens struck in the regular material, and 500 complete Full Proof Sets.  In the case of the 500 complete Full Proof Sets, every specimen was struck in 'Silver Klad" material.  The Proof-Like sets were packaged either in the Franklin Red Albums, or on cards in groups of four.  There were also some notebook proof sets which contained the entire 18 card set.

Here are the current 1966 Franklin Proof tokens that I have for sale.  Please e-mail me if you're interested in purchasing any of these tokens, or have any questions about them.
