Frito-Lay round corn chips from the early 60's--did not catch on

I can't remember the name of these. We were living in Houston in the early 60's and I remember these round corn chips coming out. I'm pretty sure they were from Frito-Lay and they were hyping the novelty of them being round and coin-like. That's I why I seem to recall them having a name like PESOS or CENTAVOS, but I see nothing online. I recall them being about Silver Dollar or half-dollar size.
I can literally picture myself at Chuck Wagon (apparently the actual name of those places was Chuc Wagun
) eating a bag of them with my hot dog. I don't think they lasted long and maybe they were just testing them in that region.
