The chip system may have begun in Indianapolis, a reference was made in a letter in 1942, and Bill W. agreed that this sounded right to him, because most of the early groups started in 1940 and it would take a couple of years to think of anniversaries and marking any time of sobriety. (aa.org)
In Dr. Bob and the Good Old Timers , it indicates that Sister Ignatia in Akron, working at St. Thomas Hospital, also used medallions: “Sister Ignatia gave each of her newly released patients a Sacred Heart medallion, which she asked them to return before they took the first drink. She would occasionally give out St. Christopher medals as well."
