Geocache Description:

A trip to a chinese restaurant may help you to decode the location of this cache. The given coordinates are for possible parking only. Placed in the Year of the Rooster, by your own Kahuna, a Rabbit.

Bronze knives and bronze spades were common barter items in ancient China, but a bit awkward or hazardous to carry around to trade. Some of China's first coins were made to look like a knife or like a stylized spade, so that people would think of them as money, however they were too thin and fragile to be used for anything but money. I was in NYC and picked up some replicas of these interesting examples of coinage from China as the economy evolved from a barter to a monetary economy. To get yourself one, solve this puzzle.
