NOTE: Bullion is defined as 1,000 coins melted into a solid metal ingot.
Typically, street transactions use copper centi (cp) or silver denari (sp) as the primary form of currency. Only the wealthiest merchants, guilds, and noble families use bullion for any transactions. Finally, gold librae (gp)—while certainly an accepted form of currency—is an uncommonly used form of currency. Most gold coinage is either foreign, from an ancient source, or hidden away in the Overlord’s (or other important personage’s) vaults.
