Default Carving small coins

I’m trying to carve “ornaments” in various designs. I’m thinking a type of plastic that is rigid and holds details without chipping would be best but there are so many types (HDPE, Acrylic, polycarbonate, etc). Attached is a picture of one of the ornaments Ive already done but it is caved into vinyl. Size of ornament in picture is 4” x 2.5” x .32”, I used a 60deg V bit and a .125 EM. Any material I can use to mimic these results?

corian counter fabricators (solid surface) will sell and sometimes trade or give the offall away, just have to find your local guy, i probably have 30 sheets of various sizes left over but few small pieces we sell, sometimes we give them away at the camp
