Burt Bucks from Raising Hope
The well-intentioned Burt Bucks was a great way for the Chances to get to know their neighbors while exchanging one good deed for another. In the end, too much of a good thing turns bad, and everyone’s left overstuffed with lobsters and too many knitted hats.
Dollar Conversion: one market-priced lobster.

Paddy’s Bucks from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Dennis and Mac hand out Paddy’s Bucks to drifters loitering outside of the bar as a way to get them to buy drinks at the pub. They spend a ton of real cash on creating fake Paddy’s Bucks, but you’ve gotta spend money to make money, right? That’s how the whole self-sustaining economy thing works, right? Well, no, not right.
Dollar Conversion: -$100

Schrute Bucks & Stanley Nickels from The Office
Created as a way to encourage good behavior for extra lunchtime, Dwight’s plan is foiled with the invention of Stanley Nickels, and neither currency prevails.
Dollar Conversion: one Schrute Buck is 1/100th of a cent, but there is no comparison for Stanley Nickels, as its namesake said, it’s like the “ratio of unicorns to leprechauns.”

madeupcurrencies_startrek_credits.jpg
Federation Credits from Star Trek
Since dollars will not exist in the future, these credits are used exclusively for the elite. Uhura offered to buy a tribble for ten credits once.
Dollar Conversion: $1.03, according to this.

Kittens from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Used in Kitten Poker, demons bet with those adorable meowing bundles.
Dollar Conversion: priceless.

Nadia Chaudhury would gladly exchange her life savings for all the kittens and all the Tribbles.
