Gold coin from the Basque festival Jaialdi. This coin was for the Jaialdi of 1963. There is an image on both sides. One side has two dancers in relief, one male and one female. The text on this side of the coin is as follows: "Euzkaldun Jai-Alai. Centennial Souvenir 1863-1963. Basque Holiday, Aug. 5th - 10th, Caldwell, Idaho." The reverse of the coin depicts a wooden wagon wheel, a pick axe, and another (unknown) circular design. The words, "Idaho Territorial Centennial, 1863-1963" are in raised letters on the upper left region.
