There are dozens of different coins and currency systems on Tamaranth, with coins made out of platinum, gold, silver, copper, brass, even iron, but the value is anybody's guess, varying from place to place and even day to day. However, one system that is generally accepted (like the dollar during the 20th century or the pound during the 19th) is the Tanalok Münze (plural: Münzen). The denominations are the Pfennig (or cp) the Silber Schilling (or sp, worth 10 cp) and the Gold Münze (or gp, worth 100 cp). The plural of Shilling is Schillinge, and of Pfennig, Pfennige. Since they are based on the value of the metal as well as the stability of the government, they are very standardized.
Also of importance is the monetary system of Assel-Vesdra. The basic unit of currency is the rustui, a copper coin worth one-half Pfennig.

The basic monetary unit in Canterus is the Florin. They are exceptionally attractive coins, large, with artistic designs deeply and cleanly stamped, and sharply milled edges.
