Currency on Tinris has seen a long and colorful history on Tinris before becoming standardized to its current incarnation as of year 5,000, Era of Hegemony


According to apocryphal sources, currency began on Tinris during the Era of Dawntime in a format recognizable to any Prime Material historian. Small pieces of metal in varying weights and varying degrees of metallurgical and economic value. Throughout the millenia, however, currency has fluctuated wildly.

The most stable pre-Sunrise Era currency remained minted coins, interspersed in certain periods of history with letters of credit backed by precious metals.

Coin based currency tended to break down along the following scale, though no legal definition of standards existed until the Banking Act and Law of Currency were: 1,000 coppers (cp) to 100 silvers (sp) to 10 gold (gp) to 1 platinum (pp).

In the modern Era, a similar base ten currency system exists, though the need for scalability resulted in the current credit based currency model, known officially as the Tinrisian Credit or colloquially as the yottachit system. The following table shows the official word for a unit of currency, its official banking symbol (as defined by the Law of Currency), its fully defined decimal value and the expounded banking term (as defined by the Banking Act). As each of these might be encountered with equal frequency, they are provided for your convenience.
