That is very similar to several local currencies in use in the USA, such as Amesbury Hours.  Most are denominated in terms of some common calculation of the worth of an hours labor.  I.E. an hour of time from a doctor or a lawyer would be worth more units than an hour of yard work. And the units are only accepted locally.
