I'm in the throws of setting up a baby sitting circle. I trust these people to look after my children and all my worldwide belongings, so fraud isn't a worry. But, I need to find something to use as currency. Some kind of metal token / coin would be prefferable to paper based vouchers, but would almost certainly be prohibitively expensive. Based on 15 members with 15 hours credit each to start off with and 1 token being worth 1/2 hour, I'll need about 500. What do other baby sitting circles use?
