What is a Silver Strike?A Silver Strike is a Limited Edition Gaming Token which is won from a special slot machine and is in a protective plastic holder. People from all over the world collect, buy, sell and trade these unique gaming tokens. The first Silver Strikes were won from special slot machines in the Reno/Tahoe area of Nevada in 1992. The tokens have been issued with redeemable values of $2, $3, $7, $10, $20, $28, $40, $200 and $300. The most common denomination is $10. Did you know that the first Silver Strikes did not have a plastic protective capsule? The older silver strikes contain a higher silver content than the newer strikes. As the prices of silver increased, the silver content decreased. Today, most silver strikes are Clad - brass with heavy silver plating. They feature a variety of designs, some are even colorized.
