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 2021 Strike Guide place the value of this at $2000.+ and the companion
piece, "Chariot - No Date" at $2000.+
