I love books about money and this one was fun.  I got it at Hennessey + Ingalls in Santa Monica.

This book is full of anecdotes about money.  For example, do you know about the zero rupee note that’s been issued to fight corruption?  What about the stone money of the Yaps, or the money issued by Maharishi Vedic City?  All these and more await you when you read this one (which is so unlike John McCain’s “that one”).

This would be a great gift for a banker or someone that works for a currency engraving company.
