Noney.

No, that’s not a typo - it’s not money, it’s noney! From the website:

… instead of metal, tobacco or rum, Noney’s standard is the aesthetic value of the note itself. It’s an economic system backed by art - art that also serves as the system’s currency.

While Noney notes have the same basic dimension, look and feel of government-issued money, they don’t resemble any other currency. Noney is a new design. Ten different faces show people of Rhode Island with their favorite bird and favorite vegetable. These people entered a contest to appear on Noney. They represent a variety of lives and professions. Among them are a painter, a community advocate, a librarian, a photographer, a waiter and musicians.

The illustrations on Noney are hand-drawn, then hand-screenprinted onto archival, acid-free sheets of polyethylene fiber, a material that’s lighter and tougher than paper. After printing, each note is editioned by hand in red ink with a number indicating its print order. Each note is then signed in black ink. Noney’s total print run is 10,000 notes: 1,000 of each face.

Each Noney note has the same denomination: zero. This doesn’t mean each note has no value… just relative value. There’s no fixed exchange rate or location of operation. Noney’s worth as both art and currency is something to negotiate through each individual transaction - anywhere.

    Nothing out of Rhode Island suprises me anymore… not even nonsensical things such as this…
