I really like this idea, and, like Wifey said, I think simple is the best. On the .25 chip the headband on the derby hat is black against a black background. I think this would look good across all denominations, but that's just my opinion.
Like the new direction. I think the labels could use a border. I wonder if there's too much color matching going on? Maybe the fonts all stay white and the hats change color with the chips? I think it works best to have some consistency in the label and one small variation. Good looking stuff keep at it!
Love them. Are you gonna mill the recess area?
Nice job. Are you leaving the hotstamp on one side are are you just showing before and after?
Gotcha. I do dislike "1" in Cooper font. I'll update it something different. Thanks for the additional input.Although not the point you were making, as a rule of thumb having different fonts as well as a different font size for the denom and title helps create a hierarchy and increases legibility. Might be worth experimenting with.
Use of Impact should probably be limited to Trailer Park Boys titles:
I've been indoctrinated against the use of Impact for a long time, but even without my bias I would say the two fonts as they are don't complement each other enough. The strict jarring nature of Impact clashes with the fun soft shaping of the Lucky Derby font.
I think it should be "The Lucky Derby" instead of just Lucky derby, and you'd need to look at more creative font. Personally, I like the derby at the top to give you more real estate in the middle of the chip for a stylized font for the text. Art deco/20s type of feel might be good for that theme.
