Hello Group

I won these StarQuest silver coins at the Hilton hotel a few years ago.
They were "supposebly" valued at over $500.00 at the time. I am thinking
of selling them. Is anyone familiar with them? Any comments would be
appreciated. Thank you. Lee

Neat looking group of tokens, worth nowhere near $500 except in the eyes
of the *** that issued them (it may be that the tokens could have
been cashed in for $500 at the *** and might still be able to be
cashed in there- it would be worthwhile to contact the *** and ask).
What you have are generally referred to as "silver strikes" and usually
are won through slot machines specially designed to dispense them. Most
have a "face value" of $10 but only contain just over 1/2 ounce of
silver (worth about $3). The four outer tokens look like they are this
size, the center token looks larger. There are collectors of silver
strikes and if yours is a "rare" set, it could be worth a decent sum to
a collector (though probably still not anywhere near $500). I looked in
my reference for Nevada silver strikes and did not find it listed. You
may wish to contact Marv Weaver who is as expert as you'll find in this
area. You may e-mail me for his address if you wish. Good luck.

ALthough the coins are not listed here many more of the same type are. This may be a good starting
place.

A search here may help too.

Another link with a lot more listings.

I did a search under spacequest on ebay and nothing for the silver chips.

FWIW I have several of these from the Riverside *** in Laughlin NV that I would trade if anybody
is interested.
