That's why I asked for other more concrete ideas, because visualising "money" is not something I can easily conceptualise or do.
I suspect I'm not the only person who has trouble trying to imagine "money" in ways other than concrete, though, so perhaps someone else (with or without dyscalculia; it's kind of an unusual disorder) might get something from this thread.
In the meantime, I've been counting hundred dollar notes out (I find it surprisingly easy to visualise doing this), so I guess I'll see how that works out.
