Scope of unique ids in dropdown or multi select fields


I want to configure options for some customized fields. What is the scope of the options unique id? Can I start from 1 for every different project/option combination or must each and every option have a unque id?

If the latter is true - how do I get hold of all the configured option ids so I do not reuse one accidently?
