Hi all, I landed a copy of St Petersburg for a fair price...but it has no money. Any ideas for replacement money? I don't feel the need to have metal coins in this game, and would prefer coins in 1, 5, 10, and 20 values. I am even open to buying a game that sells for under $20 just to use the coins..if they would work with the game. It does not seem like you can buy just cardboard coins on their own anywhere. Also, I am not a fan of poker chips. Thoughts??

You might find something to your liking at MeepleSource: "Discs" catagory

I've bought some small things from them and I've never been disappointed.

You could always make your own using game crafter if you have a design you would like to use. May take a little work on your end but you could get exactly what you want for a really good price. They even allow you to mix and match the types of coins on a sheet so it works out pretty cheap.

Something to consider about St. Petersburg is that money is supposed to be secret. The backs of the bills are all the same so that opponents do not know how much each player has.

So finding money that is marked solely on one side, or is perhaps all the same color with only the denominations differing may affect your search.

That is a good point! I am considering robbing some of my Small World coins (also supposed to be secret, so one side is all the same) as I have both base sets in one box and never use even half of the coins.

Maybe look at a currency that has a favourable exchange rate and get some foreign coins to use? Think 1c, 2c, 5c, 10c, 20c etc etc

Doesn't have to cost you a lot, but would add some great feel and sound that cardboard or plastic wouldn't...
