Currency

A listing of coins used throughout the realms. Values are given relative to the Vornheim denar (the “silver standard” for bankers and moneylenders). Note that prices are typically given in increments of “Solids”, as merchants prefer these larger-denomination coins. Bankers tend to favor small coins known as “sterlings” for accounting purposes, which they set at a value equal to the denar, and 1 pound of which are valued equal to the Vornheim Libris (the largest denomination gold coin in circulation), as such many large bank accounts are tracked in “Pounds of Sterlings”.

In addition to the modern coins above, adventurers are likely to find numerous coins of ancient or unusual mint while adventuring. Such coins are typically valued by merchants as any modern coins of similar material, weight, and purity (i.e. any large silver coin of roughly 2 oz. weight would have buying power roughly equal to a Vornheim Taler). However such coins often fetch much higher exchange rates from moneychangers or collectors.
