Pound - treasure card costing $5

Worth $2

When you gain this put a Pound token on a supply pile other than the pound supply.
Cards in this pile cost 1 less (but not less than 0) and can only be bought when you played a pound this turn.

Very Broken Card. If I place a pound token on the Province pile then it forces all my opponents to buy Pounds as well cause otherwise they'd never be able to buy provinces. Forcing a card to be purchased to but a province really breaks the game.

Additionally If the province pile gets a lot of Pound tokens on it then they can be gained easily through other means like Workshop.

A way you could make that better is by limiting it to one or two pound tokens per pile, and/or specifying that the player who played the pound token would be the only one limited by the pound token. If you did that, of course, the tokens would need to be colored for each player.

Or only get the discount per Pound you play.

At the very least, rule it couldn't be used on Victory piles.

I'd go RevanFan's way, having an Adventures-like token(s) to go with Pound, and then using a Ferry-like wording, like:
When you buy this, move one of your Pound tokens to a Supply pile. During your turns, cards from that pile cost X less, and may only be bought if you have a Pound in play.

You could then have one or two personal Pound tokens per player.
