About the Australian Chip Guide

Introduction to the ACG

The Australian Chip Guide was created to showcase the Casino Chips & Casino Memorabilia from Australian and New Zealand Casinos. In addition I wanted to create a Guide Number system that corresponded with the widely used and accepted Chip Guide and Caribbean Chip Guide.

The Chip Guide numbering or ID system uses a CG prefix while the Caribbean Chip Guide uses a CCG prefix. The Australian Chip Guide has followed the same protocols and all guide numbers feature an ACG prefix for ease of identification.

ACG Guide Numbers

I have created the Australian Chip Guide numbers or ACG numbers for short, to make identification of Australian and New Zealand Casino Chips & Memorabilia quick and simple. Once assigned to a chip or item an ACG number will never change.

  • BLACK ACG Numbers indicate that the chips or memorabilia item is in my collection.
  • RED ACG Guide Numbers indicate that the chip or memorabilia ARE NOT in my collection. These scans have been donated by other collectors or gathered from the internet.

Any chip or memorabilia item that has a RED ACG number, I would like to add to my personal collection. Please email me at kjhtwo@iinet.net.au if you are interested in selling or trading.

Colour Abbreviations

Throughout this website and where possible, I have used the colours of the Paulson Colour Samples to name the base colour of the chips and the insert colours on the chips. The full colour name is listed for the base colour of each chip but in the case of inserts I have abbreviated the colour names. Below are the abbreviations I use for the 78 Paulson Colours

Guide Numbers

Also known as ID#'s or catalogue numbers. The Guide numbers used on this site are the identifying numbers I use for the chips in my collection. These are taken from a few different sources that I have found is either the best way or the most commonly accepted way to indentify particular chips.

Any chip that does not have a guide number has either
a) not been catalogued with guide numbers
b) does not have guide numbers that I am aware of, or
c) has a numbering system that I currently do not use.
