QUERY: INFORMATION ON MARDI GRAS DOUBLOONS SOUGHT

Dave Welsh of classicalcoins.com writes:

I would appreciate it very much if someone on this list could provide information as to the manufacture and collecting of the modern day jetons that are distributed as "doubloons" during Mardi Gras parades.

McLaughlin, Mardi Gras Doubloons and Medallions

The only book on the topic in my library is a 1965 work by Lloyd A. McLaughlin, Jr. titled "Mardi Gras Doubloons and Medallions" (see image). -Editor

Back in our April 9, 2006 issue, numismatic literature dealer Richard Stockley wrote:

I sell a book called "Doubloons Commemorative Medals" by Jerry Ledet Sr. I don't know if it is updated every year - mine is a 1994 edition. It is basically a listing, not illustrated, of the doubloons along with a couple of other items.
