Mardi Gras Dubloons from the '60s Wally, Airstream and other

Keeping in the spirit here are early Airstream, WBCCI and Wally Byam dubloons from the formative years.

Were those Dubloons made of Aloominum? I've seen them on ebay, now I know some of the rest of the story.

Thanks PeeWee,
So sorry I missed you in San Antone? I wasn't there.
Did yall enjoy the city? I saw your Alamo T-shirt.

Were the doubloons just advertising coins or was Wally actually involved in some Mardi Gras activity?

And I wonder if anyone knows what became of and when was the Krewe of the Silver Circle ? That has a nice ring to it. (pun intended).

What about the Gulf States Unit? What is its history?

Lastly Silverhawk what are those coins usually selling for on eBay?
thanks

I really don't know what they would go for in the end. I never followed any of those items.

Wally was not involved with the Mardi Gras. These were Airstreamers that made the dubloons.

I have no information about the Gulf States Unit, or the Sivler Circle Krewe.

My Mother had these in her "trove of stuff."

Historic in nature, and aluminum by structure.
