Margaritaville - Flamingo Casino chips

Just got some chips from Harrah's Flamingo Casino in Las Vegas. They are limited edition chips that were released on October 19. There are 3000 of the $5 denomination and 1000 of the $25 denomination.

One side of each:

The other sides:

I wish my photos were better but you can get a good look if you simply check out the auctions for these chips on eBay.

If you want to see what looks like the proofs for the artwork, Gene Trimble posted links over on the ChipBoard on the day they were released:

The $5:
Flamingo Jimmy Buffett Margaritaville $5 Chip

The $25:

Re: Flamingo Jimmy Buffett Margaritaville $25 Chip

I'm getting a total of six chips. That way, if I decide to frame them I can show all four sides and have one of each to play around with.

Best regards,

Neil

I see this got moved. Sorry if I posted in the wrong place but I really wasn't trying to announce the release - just wanted to put the pictures in the gallery .

Re: Margaritaville - Flamingo Casino chips

I read somewhere, perhaps on the ChipBoard, that they were limiting people to a maximum of 5 chips at the cage (but you could get around that by sending somebody else up to buy them).
