What’s Up with AA Milestone Tokens? Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) has not recognized the chip system in an official manner in any way but it is still used around the country, and everywhere in the world for that matter, to mark major milestones in recovery. The AA milestone tokens come in several varieties signifying and confirming the periods of sobriety. Normally as big as a poker chip, these special medallions are oftentimes handed out by the home group, spiritual guides, close friends or family members of those in recovery. It has two objectives which are to commemorate the accomplishment and to strengthen the recipient’s commitment to his or her personal recovery. The chip system’s exact origin is almost impossible to determine but it is usually posited that it begun in Indianapolis in 1942. The story is that Alcoholics Anonymous was introduced to Indianapolis in the early 1940’s by Doherty S. In his letter to Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder Bill W., Doherty mentioned bequeathing “chips” and “tokens.” The AA milestone token becomes the symbol of membership of so many anonymous people around the world. It may be inconsequential to the general populace but the keepsake is very important to the receiver. Starting the journey to sobriety in the company of anonymous supporters is usually marked by a silver colored aluminum 24 Hour Token after the first day of abstinence. The beneficiary can keep the twenty-four hour token for a lifetime as a quiet representation of his or her AA way of life.

The moment a member of AA reaches one year of uninterrupted sobriety, he or she can get a Bronze Yearly AA Token during the anniversary celebration. The token comes in the form of a medallion and is often termed “heavy metal” to refer to its weight and its significance as one reaches his or her birthday in Alcoholics Anonymous. The celebrant’s sponsor normally hands over the yearly bronze token along with a cake and a dedication. For very momentous sobriety anniversaries, there is the Brilliant Triplate Medallion. The Triplate AA Token is the most fanciful and highest priced medallion. Regardless of the period of sobriety designated by a specific AA token, each one represents the significance of that accomplishment to a recovering alcoholic wherein each day of abstinence is worthy of praise and thanksgiving.
