Dearborn FEC Chooses TokensDirect

Cincinnati, OH – Galaxy Zone, a new outer space themed Family Entertainment Center in Dearborn, MI, has chosen TokensDirect as their token supplier. The new venue, which opened recently in the Dearborn suburb of Detroit, features 32 token-based arcade games which accept the newly minted custom 0.90” diameter brass tokens.

According to TokensDirect, “Tokens are more secure than cash because there is virtually no threat of employee theft. Since they are sold through token dispensers, fewer employees are required – thus aiding site profitability. Tokens can be purchased for pennies and sold for a quarter, so they provide a guaranteed return. This cost-to-value ratio is heightened when ‘walkaways’ – tokens which are sold but never redeemed – are included. Galaxy Zone offers deals for higher volume purchases – which further enhances the likelihood of ‘walkaways.’ In addition to generating cash, these unused tokens are valuable marketing tools when they are seen with ‘pocket change.’”

In addition to custom tokens, TokensDirect offers hundreds of standard designs which can be easily customized. Their full line of tokens is available through their online store with factory direct pricing, low minimum order quantities and fast turnaround time on all orders. Hundreds of designs and sizes of stock tokens are available for immediate shipment. Custom tokens can be shipped within 10 business days.

Whether stock or custom, every token is minted with crisply detailed impressions and accurate dimensions, which exhibit electrical and weight consistency throughout every batch – thereby minimizing jams and rejections. Coin acceptors can be programmed with very tight settings, significantly reducing cross-acceptance of unwanted tokens. Large or small orders ship from a conveniently located Cincinnati mint, minimizing transit time and cost. Many metals choices are available, including Brass, Red Brass, Nickel Silver, and aluminum, as well as nickel plating and bright color anodizing.

TokensDirect is a division of Osborne Coinage Co., America’s oldest private mint. Stock and custom tokens are available to suit any need – and can be ordered from a secure online store. For more information, visit
