Star Wars Mardi Gras Coin
Here's a coin from Mardi Gras 1982 in Lousiana. The front of the coin shows an X-Wing excaping from the Death Star.

The back shows the Lousiana State Capitol building in Baton Rouge (the connection between Lousiana, Star Wars, and Mardi Gras is still a mystery to me). It's very similar in size and texture to the POTF coins that would be issued three years by Kenner. This coin is almost certainly unlicensed.
