LAS VEGAS (September 23, 2021) — For Las Vegan Gregg Fisher, double-deuces are wild. If his current collection of 2,222 casino chips and tokens are approved, he will almost triple the current Guinness World’s Record. As part of the record attempt, all 2,222 items will be publicly displayed next week.
Fisher, a member of the Casino Collectibles Association, holds the current Guinness World Record for the world’s largest collection of casino chips and tokens – 818, each from different casinos. The process of authenticating, counting, and photographing each piece of his entire expanded collection of 2,222 pieces takes place over a four-day span at Spinettis Gaming Supplies, 810 S. Commerce Street in Las Vegas. The entire new potential record-setting collection can be viewed by the public there from 9:30 A.M. to 5:30 P.M. this Monday through Wednesday, September 27th through 29th.
“The record is based on the largest number of items over a single subject in a private personal collection,” says Fisher. “In this case, only one chip or token from a specific casino is counted. So, in my case, the number of items in this Guinness World Record represents the same number of different casinos. I cannot thank Spinettis enough for all of the assistance provided on my record quest.”
Two qualified independent witnesses from Spinettis, as confirmed by Guinness, must document the collection, and submit a statement of their daily activities involved in the process. As part of the process, the collection must be put on public display for three days for review and challenge.
After everything is submitted to Guinness World Records, the twelve-week review process starts, and the wait for acceptance begins. It should be noted that about 40% of all Guinness World Record attempts fail because of the lack of perfect paperwork.
If approved, the new world’s largest casino chip and token collection, as recognized by Guinness World Records, will also be on display at the Casino Collectibles Association’s (CCA) 29th annual show, June 16-18, 2022, at the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The show is open to the public and offers the unique opportunity to examine, buy, sell, trade or evaluate casino collectibles and memorabilia. It features museum-like exhibits and dealers of casino memorabilia from all over the world.
