The picture below shows a larger view of all (11) Different ©1968 Shell Gasoline & Oil Advertising Premium Famous Facts & Faces Game Token Coins in this lot. One coin (middle right) was flipped over to show the back design. Beginning in 1968 these coins were given out at Shell gas stations with a fill up of gas. They would have you returning many times if you wanted to complete the set. We do not remember how many different coins were in this set. There were other similar sets like that of U.S. Presidents called “Mr. President”. There may have been prizes involved with these game tokens. These aluminum tokens were saved on cards made of paper or cardboard. These have the portrait of a famous person or a historic scene on the obverse side with a 1968 copyright year. They are marked on the reverse side as follows:

SHELL’S
FAMOUS FACTS & FACES
GAME

The coins or tokens included in this lot (in the order pictured) are as follows:

(Ben) Franklin Discovering Electricity In Lightning
John Paul Jones
Admiral Byrd’s Flight Over The South Pole
Paul Revere
Abraham Lincoln
George Washington
Booker T. Washington
Benjamin Franklin

The advertising token coins each measure about 1''. They appear to be in mint condition as pictured.
