These two gambling chips were issued by Metropolitan Casinos Ltd, which as far as we know,

This is a pair of very high-value gambling chips from the Victoria Club in Nottingham, England. There are only two chips, but one is for £100 and the other is for £500. To get either of these two, you had to be a high roller.
The £100 chip is golden yellow with four security multi-coloured bands around the rim. The £500 chip is pink again with the four security multi-coloured bands around the rim. Remember that these are the actual chips that were used by high rollers. The £500 chip actually cost you £500, admittedly that was when they were current. Both chips have the most impressive building on the back. So if you don’t want to pay £600 for the pair, how about £14.95 At this price, they are a bargain and think how much fun you can have showing them to your friends. Just tell them that you forgot to cash them in…
