Detroit has its own currency
    Detroit Community Scrip, also known as Detroit Cheers, is a local $3 currency backed by the US government. Cheers were first introduced in 2009 as a way to invigorate the local economy, since only businesses in the city accept the currency. The bills, which are printed with an image of the Spirit of Detroit and the city skyline, might be too pretty for their own good. While the currency has seen limited success, the attractiveness of the bills has resulted in customers wanting to keep them rather than spend them.
