Plastic Plaques - Large Denomination Playing Chips
Florida Plastics Projects
The heavier clay poker chips "clink" when they hit the pot.
Many exotic plastic forms are also widely used. They are lighter but more durable.

If required, additional security features are sometimes incorporated into the plastic plaques.

Chips are embedded with RFID tags to help venues keep better track of them, determine players' average bet sizes, and to make them harder for counterfeiters to reproduce. However, this technique is costly and considered by many to be unnecessary to profit.
An RFID tag is an object that can be attached to or incorporated into a product, animal, or person for the purpose of identification using radio waves. Chip-based RFID tags contain silicon chips and antennas. Passive tags require no internal power source, whereas active tags require a power source.

Exonumia is the study of coin-like objects such as token coins and medals, and other items used in place of legal currency. This includes elongated coins, encased coins, souvenir medallions, tags, badges, counterstamped coins, wooden nickels and other similar items.

The equivalent British term is paranumismatica.
