Being the good sport he is, he let me craft-ify things a little and make some treasure coins for hiding. I traced circles on silver posterboard, but then found gold scrapbook paper at Hobby Lobby. I tried making a printer version...if you like, you can print them here. The gold paper didn't take our printer ink very well, but they would print fine on yellow or gray cardstock.
I decided to go a step further and break out my handy little home laminator to make them re-usable and a little more durable. Now we can write a verse with sharpie marker and then wipe it off later with rubbing alcohol.
If you don't have a laminator accessible to you, fret not. Just cover both sides of the coins with wide, clear packaging tape, stick it to itself, and trim around. Instant lamination!
A few Proverbs we are working on with our preschoolers are these:

Friends – Prov 1:10, 13:20, 16:28, 17:17, 18:24, 27:6, 27:17
Guarding your heart – Prov. 4:23
Tongue/Speech – Prov. 4:24, 10:18-21, 10:32, 15:1, 15:4, 16:24, 21:23
Lying – Prov 12:22
Listening to correction/obeying authority – Prov 1:5, 1:7-9. 9:9, 13:1, 13:18, 15:5, 15:32
Wisdom - Prov 16:16
I had this little rustic wooden treasure chest which we've started using to hold the kids' Bible story books...and our Wisdom coins. It's all a great visual reminder, and keeps our coins handy for reviewing the wisdom we're trying to seek out.
