President Casino On The Admiral 5 Cents

The President Casino was on the S.S. Admiral a riverboat in St. Louis, Missouri. The casino issued chips, tokens, and vouchers from five cents to one thousand dollars.

Aside from the name and value the token has a trademarked star symbol with a flag flying. I think that is from the casino since the S.S. Admiral was just an engine-less riverboat destined to be scrapped. The Admiral started out as a regular riverboat then it was turned into flagship steamboat, in the 1930s. It eventually got turned into an amusement park ride.

By 1991 riverboat casinos were just starting and The President was among the first. It changed owners a couple times and eventually went bankrupt in 2003 and sold to other casino operators. Of course the casino was too expensive to rebuild and open so the license was surrendered and ship sold for scrap.

The token can no longer be redeemed and is so common it hold little extra value. I think it is some sort of copper-nickel mix but I cannot really tell. It is not magnetic and the internet tells me little about composition. There are no visible mint marks or claims by producers.

Here are the stats for this token...
Type / Country: 5 Cents token - St. Louis, MO / America
Year: Early 1990s - 2010
Mintage: Unknown
Metal: Unknown
Diameter: 0.8125 inch Thickness: 0.0312 inches Weight: 3.95 grams
Value: $1.00 in circulated Very-Fine

Thanks I got this as a nickel at lunch.

There is a local fast food joint that I've been going to and they been giving me a bunch of odd coins because they know I collect.

I actually have one of the oval windows from the Admiral. Very little scrap was saved when they demolished it so it may be one of a kind. I am curious to see what the value could be.
