(this plaque was made about 1990 by Atlantic Molding, Maine, a chip manufacturer)
Note: Although it can't be seen in the picture below, the final chip has either a clear transparent coat or a uniform textured (a very fine checkering or linen finish) pattern over the entire face of the chip, so the inlay is "sealed into the chip."  That prevents counterfeiting, and it makes the chip look particularly attractive.  
In the 4th stage, below, the inlay was placed on the soft chip, and then all the following was done at once in stage 5: heated compression that sealed in the inlay, made the rim mold impression (elephant and crown design) and gave the linen finish, cross-hatching surface to the chip.
