I design/produce specialized "currency" called "Kid's Kash -- similar to "Disney Dollars -- that is used each year at the National Insulator Show (yes - there is such a thing

Kid's who submit displays can win Kid's Kash and spend it on the showroom floor for face value.

I try to theme the currency according to the history of the locale.

The next show is in summer 2019 in Orlando, FL. Do any of you currency specialists know of any US money that was made in the past that might have a FL like design of any sort (like one with palm trees)?

Samples from the recent show in Kansas City, MO featured rare insulators found in Kansas City and Ben Franklin's electricity experiment with the kite. They were printed on a more cream colored linen paper for a real look and feel.

Series 1882 Brown Back notes feature a rendition of the state's seal https://currency.ha.com/itm/nationa...tion-071515#

Here's a private scrip from the 1880s https://currency.ha.com/itm/obsolet...ption-071515

These are the only two that I've thought of or found.

I thank both of you for the help. This is exactly the type of thing I was looking for.

Is a bare chested lady a good design for kids? Maybe a redesign with a cover-up is necessary.

Thanks for asking.

I am Sorry I did not mention that all artwork would be made family friendly -- something I am adamant about.

When I made the comment of this being exactly what I was after, I meant the setting... and specifically the palm tree as in my first post.

For some reason I was finding it very difficult to find currency using a palm tree or other very tropical looking plants. I did, thanks to the answers I got, find more ways of looking online and got a bunch of old Hawaiian money and some from Florida that looks tropical.

You might be able to lift some images from these souvenir cards.

Sure thing! I'll just crop the banknotes, since that's all you need from those cards.
