The diameter of the clay poker chips is 39 millimeters.

The composite poker chips are usually purchased as a cheaper substitute for the clay ones as they weigh exactly like the clay ones. On the other hand, the plastic ones are probably the cheapest solution but they are of the lowest quality possible.

Testing the poker chips is another important tip you should have in mind before you go on the market for buying them. If you want to get golden inserted chips, you should try them and rub one in order to see if the golden insertion does not go away. Also, you should weigh a few chips in your hand to see if they are really heavy. Plastic chips are the less heavier ones and they are of the lowest quality as well.

Another thing you should have in mind is testing the edges and the plane surfaces of the poker chips. You should rub two chips against each other and see if they lose color. If they do not, they are probably of good quality.

In conclusion, there are a lot of thing to have in mind when you shop around for poker chip sets. If you want to have a good poker experience with your friends, you should make sure that you get the best chips on the market for your money. There are online stores you can check out as poker chip sets are usually less expensive online than offline. Depending on their quality, there are different prices and number of chips for every set.
