I have a few tokens left. I've never been lucky in the casinos. At least not lucky enough to have chips left over

Wow! Looks like you have a very expensive souvenir collection. It would have been nice if all the Carnival ships had their names on their chips; much like the Mardi Gras and Carnivale chips in the upper left corner of the photo. That way if the chips got mixed-up together, you would still know what chip was from what ship.

As for me and your quiestion, I am not a gambler; except maybe for a few pulls on the arms of the slots. So, I don't have any chips collected from cruiseships.

I rarely gamble but I did notice that the casino chip from the Carnivale does not indicate denomination. Are Carnival's casino chips a consistent size for certain denominations or is the currency value listed on the obverse of that particular chip?

I'm still trying to figure out why this thread sends my browser in longitude land.

The chips should be consistent in size. They stack and count them by color. They should denote the denomination and the ship on one side now, and the name of the ship's casino on the "obverse" side. I don't play with the chips, but have found a few $1 ones on the floor.

Jim would be better at answering this question. As far as the rarity goes about the collection, I would imagine the Mardi Gras and Carnivale chips would fetch more money than face value as collector items.

Heres the other side of the Carnivale chip....



The Mardi Gras and Carnivale are worth over $100 each in the collectors market as they are rare.
If you want to see some more of em, i have several chips listed on my site, www.collectionlibrary.com/deputyfl . Some are real cheap if the boat closes and the whole lot of chips hit the market. Some are harder to find. The yellow, green, and white sky colored Carnival chips are tough to find and can be pricy to get.
Heres another neat one from the Costa Flavia ship....

let me add that some of the new Carnival chips have the ship name on them. After the Festivale, they went to different sky colored chips and they used those for a long time. They still used the peach colored sky chips mixed in with chips that have the name of the ships on them.

Thanks deputy for the education. I collect some older Carnival items. I have a glass ashtray with the Mardi Gras, Carnivale, and Festivale on it. I have most all of the old Glassware, and a lot of the anniversary items. I look on ebay sometimes, but the items are getting harder to find.

Most of the current Carnival Casino Chips are fairly generic (as in they are all the same physical chip) and then they add a paper label onto them. These labels do have individual ship names on them, but many are generic here also with the "Fun Ships" logo on them (in being they could be placed on any ship). I have seen chips from different ships in the casinos. I have also used chips from other Carnival cruises on ships they did not come from.

As far as rarity goes, I would imagine the Mardi Gras and Carnivale will become the rarest one since they were made for those specific ships.

I know many people collect chips from the older Vegas casinos so why not collect them from ships as well? I just never got into collecting chips. Maybe its because I never had any left over at the end of the gaming session?
