COMMENTS

See A202537 for a guide to related sequences. The Mathematica program includes a graph.
W. Gawronski et al. in their paper  see ref. below  obtained the asymptotics for the ChebyshevStirling numbers. In the algebraic description of the respective "asymptotic coefficients" the number x = 2*log phi, where phi is the golden section, play the central role.  Roman Witula, Feb 02 2015
Also two times the Lévy measure for the continued fraction of the golden section, i.e., A202543/log(2) is the mean number of bits gained from the next convergent of the continued fraction representation. (See also Dan Lascu in links.)  A.H.M. Smeets, Jun 06 2018
