Finally a Mardi Gras throw you can wear and enjoy all year long! Small toys and strings of beads have been thrown by members of Carnival krewes since the 1800s, but "Mardi Gras Doubloons" weren't introduced until the 1960s. As parades were growing in number throughout New Orleans, the members of the Rex Organization wanted to invent a new throw to stay ahead of the game. Thus they had coins minted from aluminum which were big, light and easy to catch. The term "Mardi Gras Doubloon" came about because these new aluminum coins were very similar in size to gold Spanish doblóns. As a nod to the origin of Mardi Gras doubloons, Jose hand-carved a fleur de lis inside of a rustic Spanish doblón. Once the coin is cast in bronze, he assembles it inside his own handmade sterling silver bezel to create this one-of-a-kind Carnival keepsake.
