** ''Videogame/FalloutNewVegas'' gives the player the ability to craft custom shotgun shells from the Denarii coins used by Caesar's Legion.

Subtrope of ImprobableWeaponUser and, in some cases, ImprovisedWeapon. See also BlingBlingBang, in which the weapons are unusually fancy to show their user's wealth without ''being'' money; CrimefightingWithCash, where the money is spent to achieve the owner's ends; and CastFromMoney, which is an attack that drains money with each use while not necessarily weaponizing it. Compare GemstoneAssault, which also uses valuables as weapons. If the cash is shot by another weapon, it counts as a {{Subtrope}} to AbnormalAmmo.
