Recently, I pieced together a roulette mold chip set with the intention of making a T25 base set as follows:

Green T25 (400) ... Yellow T100 (400) ... Purple T500 (300) ... Pink T1000 (260) ... Orange T5000 (240) ... Blue T25000 (80)

But now I'm re-thinking the T25 base, mainly because the T25 chip gets colored up so quickly. Also, my Royal CC chip set is a T100 base and it works really well for my home game. So I thought I should just use the same (or very similar, at least) color structure as my Royal chip set.

Green T100 (400) ... Purple T500 (300) ... Yellow T1000 (400) ... Orange T5000 (240) ... Pink T10000 (260) ... Blue T25000 (80)

Yes, I realize a pink T10000 chip isn't necessary and my T100 chip is green instead of black, but I use them in my CC set, and we like it. My main concern is that the orange is actually arc yellow. Is that going to cause problems? Here is my Royal CC lineup:

You can use whatever colours you want for the tourney denoms - definitely no need to adhere to convention as long as inlay is clear.

However, you can try alternating light and dark if your quantities allow. Consider your green, purple, and blue as "dark", and your yellow, orange, and pink as "light".

Obviously you can make a solid set with any colors you'd like.

With that said, a green 100 would REALLY mess with me. I'd toss out 4 of them thinking it was 100 at least twice.
