We have three British Columbia casino pieces, made of anodized aluminum, good for 50 cents or $1 which bear a mint mark GDC, the meaning of which has eluded me. The earliest is early 1990’s – I obtained one in 1994. I have been unsuccessful in finding out what company might have made them. I have attached a scan of one piece showing the mint mark. Perhaps an E-Sylum reader can help.
The answer that came to my mind is Green Duck Corporation. A web search turned up a page with an image of the mint mark and this information: "Green Duck Corporation is a private U.S. mint. They changed their name into GDC Casino Tokens and in June 1999 the mint was closed."
