I've heard/seen different pros as well as playing partners use certain items as ball marks to represent children, lost love ones, etc. Personally I use a Morgan silver Dollar because Morgan is my last name and its a bigger coin that just works well as a ball mark. Anyone have a cool ball mark they use?

I have a couple cool copper ball marks that I bought and Old MacDonald and Bandon Dunes, respectively.  They have my initials stamped in and are a great reminder of a great trip.

I use a standard ball marker, although it has a team logo.  A friend of mine used a silver Mexican peso coin for so long that it became a smooth silver disc.

I had a Deutsche mark for awhile that I used.  Then lost it.

Went in to sign in at a local course one day and a guy walks in right behind me and threw a huge bag of foreign coins on the counter.  Found another one like I had lost and used it.  Then lost it.

Then I started using a coin with Phil 4:13 quoted on one side and an Ichthus (Christian Fish) on the other.  Then lost it.

Now I just use a boring old quarter.

When my grandfather passed we found a ziploc bag full of old coins we never knew he had, lots of buffalo nickles, Indian head pennies and quarters from the late 1800s and early 1900s. They were all worthless from a collecting standpoint, so I threw them in my bag and use them as markers. Spent a lot of time with him on the golf course over the years, so it's a nice way to always be thinking about him out there.

Canadian dime.   A small coin and (bonus!) it's magnetic and sticks to my divot tool.  No digging thru my right front pocket nervously searching for my marker...while other players wait on the green!  If I've learned anything on WRX it's pace-of-play is paramount!!!

Alabama poker chip (I'm alumni so no hating) when I'm away from others.  A dime when it is close to someone's line or could be a distraction.

Beer cap when u are far away from hole/anybody else's line... easy to see and uniquely yours. Plus, easy to justify spending $15.00 on that craft 6-pack, "But honey, it comes with 6 free ball markers, so it's really a good deal."
