Chicago Coin

Chicago Coin
Old Rare Chicago Coin?

In my dads old can of coins I have a gold colored coin that is about the size of a Half Dollar. On the front side there is maybe a 1950's looking woman in a bathing suit with a beach and palm trees and to the right of the woman it reads The Riviera. The back side reads across the top 40 W. Randolph St. Chicago then under that Good For $1.00 In Trade and then has a 4 digit number. Does anyone know what this coin is? Or what The Riviera was and what happened to it? I have searched and searched for the coin or the business name or reversed the address and I cannot find anything on it. I would love to know more about just to know the places where my dad had been and also if it is something that I should put away to pass on if it is of any value to the coin collectors sense. Anyone know some Chicago history?

It is definitely a trade token. The Riviera Cocktail Lounge was at that address from 1917 until it closed, and I don't know when that was. The token is probably from the 1940s. I have seen one that is exactly like yours on the front, but the other side is a little different. It does not have a trade value, rather, it seems to be a raffle token. '"The Riviera 25 Lucky Piece No. 391".

This piece was given out for the 25th anniversary in 1942. It was sold with a group of three Riviera 5 cent tokens, but the sale price was not available. Value is probably not high, but it's a piece of Chicago history and definitely worth saving.
