Calgary Dollars!

Hey, I just got Calgary dollars! It's an alternative local currency here and you can sign up to become a member for CA$12 and you get Calgary$40. If I understand it correctly, when you renew your membership next year, you get Calgary$20 for CA$12. More or less, a Calgary dollar is worth the same as a Canadian dollar.

It kinda works as an alternative currency the way Esperanto works as an alternative international language. Cool, eh?

So, does your city have a similar currency?
