Temporary Currency!

A Swiss village has launched its own temporary currency in order to boost the local economy and finance a new cable car, which residents say is essential for the area’s future, BBC reported. Fifty-thousand coins have been released into local circulation in the ski resort of Les Diablerets, each engraved with an image of the existing cable car’s gondola-style cabins, swissinfo.ch reports. The currency has been named the Isenau, after the ski area above the village that’s reached by the ageing lift. It’s an initiative launched by the Foundation for the Defense of Isenau’s Interests, which hopes it will raise 250,000 Swiss Francs to help fund the cable car project.
