COINS and Tokens
Meadow Gold Season Coins

updated 09/24/2013

     This is a series of promotional season schedule tokens/coins put out by Meadow Gold Dairy in Lincoln.  They were issued from 1982 through 2009.  The run ended after 2009 when Dean Foods closed the Lincoln plant to combine production and distribution with its Land O Lakes plant in LeMars, IA.  Meadow Gold started out in 1897 as Beatrice Creamery in Beatrice, NE.

     The coins measure 1-1/2" wide with a knurled edge similar to a new quarter.  They are made of aluminum, so are extremely light.  Each one features a face design based on the Meadow Gold logo, with Nebraska logos also introduced starting in 2001.  The back side features the schedule for the upcoming season, hence no scores or bowl game information. The color varies by year as well, from silver, dull pewter, red, and gold.  

     They may not be made of precious metal, but they make great dated collectibles for the collection. The scans below may look a bit dull due to scanner reflection, but all coins actually have a good sheen to them.  Click the thumbnails for larger views.  Still looking for 1987. Happen to have a spare
