9 2016 is Mardi Gras. In 1960 The first tokens were minted. Rex, king of Mardi Gras was the first to throw them from the floats. H. Alvin Sharp a very gifted inventor and inventor and artist, came up with the idea and designed many of them. You can find these in junk boxes garage sale or flee markets. Have fun collecting let the good Times roll.
