Fakes, Fantasy, and Counterfeit Chips

There are many chips that appear to be real chips from real casinos, but actually are not. The purpose of this page is to help you identify chips that are known to be fakes, fantasy or counterfeit.


If you have additions or corrections to the Fantasy, Fakes & Counterfeits pages, please contact David Spragg.

Note that in some cases not all known denominations/designs are shown if I don’t have the scans.


Please also view articles on Borland Hotstamp Fakes and Osborne Counterfeits which will be added in due course.
