Description

Hacienda $5 Las Vegas Casino Chip, First Issue, R-9, Circa 1956. Super picture detail showing the distinctive Gaucho on Horse image just like on the revolving marquee which stood outside the Hacienda for years. This early strip chip is sure to escalate in demand as most collectors enter the hobby wanting early original issue chips. Classic small key mold. Just six or seven known.

The Hacienda opened in 1956 and was located at the far south end of the Las Vegas Strip, away from other casinos. It was the first resort seen by tourists coming in from California and was close to McCarran International Airport. They even operated an airline for a time, flying in gamblers from all over the world on their own planes. The Hacienda was closed and imploded in December 1996, replaced by the Mandalay Bay.

Condition: Solid average no chips or nicks, just normal use.
