Post by phx2dammhot » Wed Nov 12, 2008 2:50 pm

i just found site thru search for info about cracker jack medal token i have, trying to find out value and do not see this one on ebay, found coin posts here and found this info (copied next)

These CJ Presidential Coins were returned to the new member of the Cracker Jack Mystery Club canceled, first all ten, then three and later five coins."

Hello Mary,
You can check out any of the internet auction sites, the Mystery token has a value of $2-5 depending on condition; the SAVE THIS MEDAL TOKEN is a little more scarce than the SAVE THIS COIN.

Does anyone have a picture of the Certificate of Membership, that kids would get for collecting these? That would be nice to see.

Hi, Luke and All :)

Here is the "three Silverine President coins" variety of the Cracker Jack Mystery Club certificate. Other variations can be viewed in my book CRACKER JACK PRIZES, page 42 and Larry White's book CRACKER JACK: THE UNAUTHORIZED GUIDE TO ADVERTISING COLLECTIBLES, page 130.

Thanks for the pics, Alex. I have both of those books, but didn't realize that the certificates were in there. It looks like I need to dust them off, and reread them. :)

The Presidential Coinswere made of aluminum so do not rust. They turn up in unexpected placers. There were 31 million of the regular coins produced but only 350,000 of the Cancelled ones.
