I’ve searched through thesamba.com photos, forums, classifieds, all with only a few hits regarding VW related coins, tokens, and medals.

I’m going to try and provide as much detailed information as I can for those who are interested in this topic.

Most people are wanting to know rarity and value, as a coin guy once told me see what people are getting on the market for them, that’s roughly what they’re worth. Also please keep in mind, some people ask for the moon, this doesn’t indicate market value. I will give information for you to base you’re decision off of when it comes to values.

As a collector myself I hope to create a post that can be used to inform, and give more information here in one place. If you can add information to this please do.

I’m a small collector, and have gathered bits of information from original VW employees and their respective family members and beyond.

For starters; this is a VW reference site that I didn’t find very easy to add to BUT had good photos of VW coins I’ve never seen before, but there’s always hope to add to my collection with time.

I will add detailed photos over time with as much info as I have available to me at that time.

These “tokens” were made avaialable during the 1969 Football game season New Orleans Saints from what I understand these were provided in Game day flyers which were purchased for a couple of dollars. They are Aluminium, and come both an Aluminum finish, as well as a ‘gold color’ finish as well. Not certain about the what, or why was for the gold finish but these seem to be rarer than the aluminum.
