Help me design my poker chips.

Does anyone have a good idea for what I could put on my custom poker chips?

I am having custom poker chips made for a home game that I run. On each side I have a 1" circle that I can put whatever I want. Within this circle there will be the chip denomination also. I cannot decide what to put in the circle. I have thought of putting an optical illusion on one side but am worried that it may start to bother people after a period of time (especially after a bit of alcohol consumption).

So does anyone have any unique, clever, elegant or funny idea for what I could put on each side?

I'd appreciate a nice, smiling face of Kenny Rogers on a chip.

The first thing I thought of was a sweet custom crest. I googled "crest designer" and found a couple websites that look like they would help streamline the process for free. Can't vouch for their quality though.

The word "Dealer" on one side and the words "Big Blind" on the other. I don't see how that would cause any confusion for beer-swilling poker players.

There's a great book called "Gambling Collectables, A Sure Winner" that has a lot of very beautiful vintage images, including a jackpot of gold in scrimshaw that would be my choice.
