COINS and Tokens
Coin Purses/Bags/Checkbook Covers

updated 10/11/2015

     This page features coin purses, or coin/change holders if you prefer, that commemorate seasons or events in the history of the Big Red.  I'm starting off with just a few, but will add more as I gain more photos.  If you have one not pictured, please email me.  Also a few coin/money bags and checkbook covers at the bottom of the page.


This coin purse is a bit of a mystery in that the back lists the 1970 schedule without scores, yet the front proclaims "Orange Bowl 1971" and "Big 8 Champs" proudly. I have this one on my shelf, but am still wondering if it was originally issued with just the schedule on the back, then the front lettering was added at the end of the season. 


1970 National Champs

This 1970 National Champs purse did not have anything printed on the front side.  May have been a case of this particular one being printed on the wrong side as normally this sort of image would appear on the front (split side) with a schedule or results on the back, but I could be mistaken. If anyone out there has more info, please share...
