Just bought a copy of splendor from the brick and mortar Amazon store in Wrigleyville in Chicago for 28.85. Online the version with the high quality plastic chips goes for 39.99. This was probably an employee/stocking error but if you really want the version with the plastic chips try it out.

The original version had clay chips I believe....so while not plastic, they were also not paper.

They've all been plastic, but the original has metal in the middle to add weight.

Yes, they're not clay, they're metal inside of plastic. They set the airport machines off when I travel with the game (sans box).

New versions of the game don't have the heft of the original printing?

That was my experience the one time I played with a newer set of coins. I thought the slight translucence made them look nicer, but I preferred my older coins overall because of the heft and my tendency to fiddle with them.

That is my understanding based on the Amazon comments https://www.amazon.com/ask/questions/Tx2E2Y4F0YFCCYM/?tag=ar...?.

The price has also dropped since yesterday and the cheaper game is now going for 24.90.
