~Casino Tokens~

The first use of modern day casino tokens/chips was in 1965 in the Harrah’s Reno and Lake Tahoe casinos. The idea of the chips came about because of the rising price of silver, and a new solution had to be made to combat the use of the silver dollar in casinos. However, the ancestors to these plastic/clay-molded cheques were known as jetons, a colored counter used to keep score in French card games dating back to the mid 1700s.

 

After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in a design. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it's preserved & sealed to ensure its longevity & protection.
