K2, elder representing (2001)

The man identifies the two-kina note as "wan faun tana." Part of the expression is borrowed from Tok Pisin. "Faun" in Tok Pisin refers to the now-obsolete Australian pound, and "wan" is the Tok Pisin equivalent "one." "Tana" is the Oksapmin word for a flat object. "Faun" is an expression used generally in the Oksapmin community to refer to a two-kina note.
