putting metal coins into a saltwater tank?

No, really!

Metals like zinc and copper are common ingredients for coins and are toxic to many inverts.

Check with your local fish stores. Maybe they will have some plastic ones you could use. Just make sure that they don't have any paint that could flake off or be toxic to your animals.

If they were authentic and 24k gold, I'm sure they'd be no problem. That's a little out of my range though.

I'm talking about something like this -

with some beaded necklaces, crosses, and maybe a torn piece of a Jolly Roger.
