A BRIEF HISTORY OF THEMARDI GRAS First introduced as a Mardi Gras favor in the 1890's, doubloons were popular until the 1960'swhen theywere re-introducedby the late H. Alvin Sharpe in the form of anodized aluminum coins. Available only from riders of the individual Mardi Gras Parade Krewes, doubloon popularityimmediately became popular as an easy way to share the unique historical excitement of various Mardi Gras Parades with absent friends and family, whether local or afar. Only available as Limited Strike Edition Coins, doubloon dyes are always destroyed upon completion of each year's mint and can never reproduced. Standard-Mint Mardi Gras Doubloons measure approximately 1.5" in diameter (slightly smaller than the U.S. Silver Dollar) with a thickness varying from 8 to 15 gauge and come in a vast variety of colors. Mardi Gras Doubloons typically features the Krewe insignia and year of inception on one side. Thereverse typically features the current year and Theme, which, chosen and strictly guarded in secrecy up to several years in advance, is always unique amongst both Krewe and Date. In lieu of the Krewe's Theme, some Mardi Gras Doubloons mayfeature a portrait of the Krewe's current Royalty.
