exonumia

   A branch of numismatics that includes medals, tokens, and scrip. Although exonumia does not include conventional coins and paper currencies, money with various unusual qualities might be included — elongated or encased coins for instance. [What about credit cards? Is that a collection of exonumia in my wallet?! -MRD]
