** NOTE ** These were the first large denomination silver strikes issued
by the Four Queens in 2003 / $200 pieces weighing 1 Troy pound each.
These four pieces combined are 4 Troy lbs. of .999 fine silver.

Because of the cost of silver rising later on, all the 1 lb. $200 strikes were
no longer available in casinos, and to replace them, it was decided that
casinos would offer their collectors the new $300 strikes that weighed in
at only 1/2 Troy lb. - They were really not as popular as the $200 strikes
because of the lower silver weight. So now, you had to turn in 30 of the
$10 strikes for the $300 strike, getting only 1/2 lb. of silver. With all of
the $200 strikes, you only need to turn in 20 of the $10 to get the $200
strike weighing 1 lb. of fine silver (better deal for the collectors). With
silver going up and up, even the .999 $10 silver strikes were becoming
hard to get, because they were being replaced with clad strikes.

The last of the casinos dropping the $200 strikes was in 2009, all except
2 casinos, the Four Queens and Sam's Town were the only 2 casinos that
offered the $200 strikes thru 2010.
(Four Queens - 5 different ones / Sam's Town - 3 different ones)

Only 3 casinos decided to continue with the high denomination strikes,
the $300 pieces even though they were only 1/2 lb. of fine silver. They
were: Four Queens / Venetian / Mirage - Now it is only the Four Queens
who releases 4 of the $300 strikes per year for special event & holidays.
#1 / January Silver Strike Club Tournament $300 Strike
#2 / St. Patrick's Day $300 Strike
#3 / June Silver Strike Club Tournament $300 Strike
#4 / Halloween $300 Strike
