I have seen two or three "party restaurants", open to large groups only, where the organiser pays for food and non-alcoholic drinks and individual clients pay for alcoholic drinks with one (beer), two (wine), or three (hard liquor) tokens, either distributed in limited numbers for each adult client or available from the reception. These tokens were plastic, though.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
