Caesars Palace - "The Roman Coliseum - No Date"

Offered Is: EXTREAMLY RARE SILVER STRIKE / ONLY 5 PIECES MINTED
Caesars Palace - "The Roman Coliseum - No Date" / Las Vegas

Following info provided by Dave Spragg / Owner - Marlow Casino Chips / UK
who has owned a couple of these along with the companion piece (only 5 pieces)
"Chariot - No Date" / SSC#: CPlvnv-001

All the examples of this strike, like this one, should be in perfect condition, as
they were never supplied to the casino because Caesar’s cancelled the order.
The only 5 of each that were made were then forwarded back to the mint that
took over the order and that’s how he came by a few for his collection.

The on-line catalog states a mintage of 9+ for both this piece and the Chariot
design counterpart. The original data from the mint showed only 10 total were
made, 5 of each design (5 Chariot & 5 Coliseum) not 10 pieces each.

Heritage auctions sold a pair for $3000.00 + $2500.00 plus the premium, that being
the Chariot and the Coliseum. Dave also sold the pair privately at similar prices.

Howard W. Herz, owner of Howdy's Strike Guide placed the value of this at $3200.
and the companion piece, "Chariot - No Date" at $3200.
William Cohenour's 2017 Strike Guide place the value of this at $2000.+
and the companion piece, "Chariot - No Date" at $2000.+
