Saw these posted in a Facebook group, pretty minty looking. Guy said the chips have only been in use a few weeks so far, not sure if you can collect em or not but figured you guys might like em:

Yes, they are magnetic. One of the rooms that I worked in used them. Sometimes, I would take my magnetic name tag and stick it to the chips to demonstrate.

I remember seeing @Chris Manzoni on Youtube talking about these chips.

Yep, I'm a fan of Chip Lab's higher end "clay" chips - though they are not clay. They are plastic and metal slugged (as are other high end chips like Matsui) but for the price point and customization options I think they're pretty awesome. I mistakenly say in my video that they are made in China, they are not, they are made in the USA.

Their lower priced "clay composite" chips are not good for play - but they work great as tokens or business cards or custom give aways.

Those are slugged plastics, but they have square, not beveled edges, and are a softer, less slippery material than the Claysmith chips. Nice colors, too.

It blows my mind that the Texas card houses are not using custom ceramics, at a minimum. The fact that I can order their chips on the Internet, apply an at home label, and make counterfeit chips, seems like a huge potential loss to them. Sure, that probably don’t have a whole lot of hundo in play, but a few loose $25 chips a day would equate to some serious losses.
