The Barbary Coast Hotel Casino was located at 3595 Las Vegas Blvd South from 1979 to 2007.
This is a $1 metal token coin dated 1979, so it’s one of the first year’s pieces. Obviously, it’s obsolete now.
One side of the coin says “Barbary Coast Hotel & Casino”, the other side shows the building. At the bottom of the building side is where it is dated 1979.
Originally opened by Michael Gaughan as the Barbary Coast on March 2, 1979. Boyd Gaming acquired the Barbary Coast in 2004. Boyd subsequently traded the Barbary Coast to Harrah's Entertainment. Harrah's finalized its acquisition in February 2007, and briefly closed the Barbary Coast before reopening it on March 1, 2007, as Bill's Gamblin" Hall and Saloon. The property closed on February 4, 2013, and reopened as The Cromwell on April 21, 2014.
Although small, once the coin is wrapped for protection, it will be too large for mailing in a standard envelope. Shipping will be via USPS First Class Mail Package. Buyer to pay $4.40 shipping charges. Shipping is from Nevada. I’ll be listing quite a few casino dollar tokens and I can probably mail 4 or 5 for that $4.40 price. On multiple purchases my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Due to claims that merchandise is not being received at various international countries (although Customs tracking verifies the delivery), I will no longer be able to process international orders unless payment is made with U.S. currency, including conversion fees. Orders will be processed after funds have cleared a U.S. bank. PAYPAL WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR PAYMENT ON INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
