Rocky Graziano, born Thomas Rocco Barbella in New York City (1 January 1919 � May 22, 1990), was an Italian American boxer. Graziano was considered one of the greatest knockout artists in boxing history, often displaying the capacity to take his opponent out with a single punch. He was ranked 23rd on Ring Magazine's list of the greatest punchers of all time.

The film starred Paul Newman and was directed by Robert Wise. Offered here is an original, gold Mardi Gras coin featuring Rocky Graziano from 1983.
