These must be from the "limited edition" or something, because my copy came with cardboard. Man, these look nice. They're competing with the Caylus coins...

For being an inexpensive game the money that came with it was nice. (Inexpensive that is if you didn't go overboard and buy many of the booster packs.)

This is my favorite from MeepleSource.com . Mini poker chips (7/8")!

They are about the size of most game money coins.

I can't stand paper money anymore! I use this for Power Grid, Railways of the World, Hacienda. Anything that doesn't have little coins (cardboard, plastic or metal).

Razzia has these cute little banknotes. Not very practical, maybe, but that doesn't matter as they're just used as victory points.

Nowhere near some of the other examples on the list, of course, but the iconic 'butterscotch' coins were a major step up from the original cardboard ones.

I'm certainly not opposed to paper money, and some of them can be really nice. This is one of the best paper money sets around: double-printed, with imagery from the Lookout Games catalogue to coincide with their anniversary.

Very cool.

Edit: Same set appears in their other 2010 release, Poseidon.

They are 20mm and 25mm across and 5 or 6 mm thick.

The guy in the middle is off-set so it looks like he just got into the frame at the last minute because he doesn't want to be there, anyway.

The look on his face tells you are completely wasting his time.

You know his mustache is twitching too, and he's only a moment away from letting loose a "Harrumph!"

The Filosofia edition. (couldn't find a better picture).
Another example of cardboard chit coins which I love. These are in three denominations which you could distinguish by colour (!).

Only cardboard can bring the colour to your coins! Not only "gold, "bronze" silver", where's the fluorescent yellow, where's the magnificent magenta, where are glow in the dark coins? (maybe we should market this idea to real world money as well...)
