Metropolitan Gambling Chips
These two gambling chips were issued by Metropolitan Casinos Ltd, which as far as we know, no longer exists. We know they are pre-decimal, i.e. before 1971, because one of the denominations is 10/- or Ten Shillings. After Decimalization it would have been called 50 Pence. There are two chips the 10/- (Ten Shillings) in gold lettering on a blue background. The other chip was a £1 with green lettering on a red background. At the time £1 was a lot of money. You get both chips which we think are very interesting, especially at this price. Remember that they are at least 38 years old. An interesting bit of history, which the internet wishes to replace completely.
