The most valuable currency I have is made of wood. The bars in Alaska will give the costumers these "Wooden Nickles" instead of a beer when someone buys a round. The state law only allows one beer at a time in front of a patron. Some of the Wooden Nickles I acquired ten years ago when a craft beer was $2.50 are worth $6 bucks now. As long as the bar is in business then so is the coin and they never blink when you trade it in.
Bar tokens are economy protected, bubble protected, not market manipulated and don't need reported to every government agency. As long as I have one in my pocket I know there's one last cold beer waiting for me.
P.S. There not made of electrons either.
