I was thinking of putting some of the money I have collected from my travels under polyurathane on my bar top. I got to thinking and did a search and haven't found anyone discussing any countries that have Tiki's on their money. Anyone seen anything like that?

Thank you,

KK

Now that's a classic concept! The Mauna Loa in Detroit had a long bar with Chinese coins imbedded in it

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=4786&forum=2

Unfortunately there are no pics of it. After the Mauna Loa closed, the bar migrated to the Chin Tiki:

(I forgot if they sold it off after the demise of the Chin Tiki, or if it ended up at Chin's, Livonia, now)

To find all Pacific states money will be quite a task --but worth it for conversation value!

I did this very thing with money I had collected over the years. I only had coins, so I searched around online and eventually found good scans of paper money from various South Pacific and Asian countries and simply printed them on the color printer. I figure since I was burying under many layers of varnish no one would mind.

Here is a website I may use to find some of the money.

http://www.wcoins.com/MiscWorldCoins.htm

Plus here is the Easter Island 1 Peso coin.

You can get fake gold leaf and make some of the
coins look like gold coins as well.

Those are so COOL!
I'm planning on going there this summer; I wonder how many I can bring home as souvenirs for friends without creating a serious coin shortage on the island.....
