That's a great question. Back in the day, poker chips didn't exist or wasn't even used. It wasn't until the old saloons and gambling places started to use pieces of clay, bones or ivory. However, they were easy to fake, so they began to put their brand on those pieces of ivory, clay or bones. But later on, modern day casinos made their poker chips from a composite that includes clay because they are more durable than just regular clay chips. You can also find some chips that are ceramic.
