When you hear someone speak of a 1 Year Chip they are probably talking about a Sobriety Medallion in a recovery program like AA or NA. A 1 year Chip celebrates a full year of sobriety. Some programs make sobriety coins a direct part of their program producing their own (Narcotics Anonymous). Other programs like AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) do not actually make chips or put their name or logo on a chip. In programs like AA chips are handed out to mark various points in sobriety but are more of a cultural norm than a direct part of the program. A 1 year chip in AA will usually have the Three Legacies Triangle and Unity Service Recovery and a Roman Numeral I in the center. The back usually has the Serenity Prayer.
1 Year Medallions can be bronze or much fancier coming in many colors with gold plating or silver plating and even crystals. You can see a selection of popular 1 year medallions on our site.
