* ''TabletopGame/{{Fiasco}}'' has quite a few playsets where a possible Object is a container of some description stuffed with cash or other valuable material, such as diamonds or gold dust. It goes so far as to quote Joe Sarno of ''Film/TheWayOfTheGun'' in a page describing what Objects add to the game:
-->''Fifteen million dollars is not money. It's a motive with a universal adapter on it.''

* ''Series/MacGyver'': In "Three for the Road", the MacGuffin is a satchel full of CounterfeitCash that the crooks are attempting to retrieve. Any kind of valuable contraband could have served the same purpose.

* [[MacGuffinTitle The eponymous treasure of Gold Roger]] in ''Main/OnePiece'' is very much a MacGuffin. Of course, while everyone ''assumes'' it's a vast fortune, the exact nature of it is arguably the greatest mystery in the series. It's merely the prestige of having been the only one since Roger to make it to the end of the world that will make whoever finds it the pirate king. In all likelihood, the actual ''treasure'' (as in silver and gold and all) aspect of the One Piece is probably rather not much. Speculations on what it could be range from a single piece of eight (It is ONE piece, after all) to a one piece bathing suit that Roger was fond of.
