I’ve never noticed any, but I’ve never looked for them either. I know those Mexican chips that the chip room released this year had some RHC $50s. But are the any casino THC $50 chips in quantity out there?

Good question.

Definitely are some fantasy line Paulson THC's, but no actual casino $50's that I can think of.

You can make anything as long as you have a drill press and a dream...
No thanks. I’m not a fan of chip murder, but I really dislike chips that pretend to be something they’re not. I’m just interested in genuine casino chips.

For THC $50 denoms, I can only think of the fantasy paulson poker sets like Casino de Mexico or Horseshoe Gardena.

It's highly improbable that any casino has produced a $50, unless it was a very specific 50c-$2-$10-$50 set (still not very probable).
Understandably, casinos want to maximise the bank for any given amount of clay, and are after efficiency.
A $50 could/would suit a home game, not playing high enough to require hundos.
That's why I didn't denominate the top value chip in my Athenian Owl custom set, anyway:)

Certainly the argument I'd make. But regardless, they're white, so they wouldn't fit into any plans I might have. But I guess those infernal pierre du congress or whatever they're called technically qualify.
Any others?

I'm almost certain I've seen others (foreign casinos, so probably not $$), but chipguide's query feature doesn't even have a 50 denom choice on the pull-down menu.

Nor does ebay, or spinetti's. But I think I've seen some at some point too. I think there's probably a bunch of euro fifties - not $, but also generally not clay.

Yes, too much to ask. I bought that from a dealer 10-5 years ago, and sold it to another collector. He passed away, so I am not sure where it showed up. However, it is believed that it is the only one that survived.
