World Largest Coin

Yap stone Money was used at the Pacific Islands of Yap until World War 11, with the largest as much as 12 feet (4m) in diameter! The largest stones were used as symbol of wealth to be displayed outside houses. The hole in the centre was for a pole so that two people could carry it!

Imagine that !. . using it today! haha. 
Found it at Singapore Coins and Notes Museum, Pagoda St., Singapore.
