Does any company manufacture an inexpensive radio frequency identification system for reusable coffee mugs that can withstand repeated microwave usage?

I've not heard of any RFID tags that can survive placement in a microwave oven, but perhaps one of our readers is aware of such a tag. If so, please post that information below. Note that even if such a tag existed, it's unlikely that it would be inexpensive—especially if it were embedded in a housing that could protect it from the energy of a microwave oven.
