$8 Year of the Ox Chips

Hello all....I don't come around these parts to often. It tends to damage my wallet, as I am sure you can understand!

Anyways, I am looking for scans or pics (or links to pics) of 2009 $8 Year of the Ox/Bull chips.

Rose's post has me itchin to see what is out there so I can make an educated decision about which/how many of each chip I want to get!

Thanks in advance!!!

{EDIT} Oh I should I add....I went to the CCG&TCC site and it seemed like they were getting hit with uber amounts of spam. Did anybody else see this?

Re: $8 Year of the Ox Chips

Be careful, these things are very additive. I got sucked into the vortex last year and got a whole load of different ones.

Chinese New Year is not until Jan 26th so I would think you see more closer to that date. Here's 2 that I've seen and it looks like it might have been released already.

Re: $8 Year of the Ox Chips

I totally understand about the addicition thing....but hopefully I will be able to avoid it because the OX is my birth year so that is the reason why I want these, but the other's aren't really interesting to me.


At least they aren't right now....after I get a few I might change my tune!!

Re: $8 Year of the Ox Chips

I, on the other hand, will go broke collecting these.

If I'm still a chipper with money when the Year of the Tiger comes around again, I won't have money for long.

We collectors call this the Slippery Slope Factor. For you, it's the notion that 2009 is your one year of Ox chips. However, the Chinese Lunar New Year has a 12 year rotation. This means that in 2021 (if chips are still being made and used in casinos) there will be another round of Ox chips.

And the real slippery part of this is that back in 1997 (also Year of the Ox) there were several casinos that had Ox chips!
