"Large Coins" State of Yap Things to Do Tip by Avenge
State of Yap Things to Do: 7 reviews and 20 photos
One must see activity are the large coins on Yap. Stones still have value and the owners change, but I understand the coins stay where they are as no one wants to lug around a 2 ton stone.
The stones come in varying sizes. I'm not sure how value is determined, but it's not by size. They were carved from stones not available on the island of Yap and had to be transported from another island quite a distance away.
They really are fascinating to see when you get up close to them and see them all lined up in a row.
Directions: Ask someone at the Manta Ray hotel for directions.
