Money in the disc is manifested as coins that are carried about. All coin types from a region form a currency.

There are seven types of currency in use on the Disc. They are:

An eighth type of currency, provincial, is no longer in use, but the brass coin was the lowest-value coin and is still the one by which the others are measured.

In-game, you can use the "rate" command or the "convert" command to see how much a certain amount is worth in another type of currency.

rate <money> {in|from} <place> {to|in} <place>
rate <money> {to|in} <place>
convert money <money> {in|from} <place> {to|in} <place>
convert money <money> {to|in} <place>

For example:

>rate LSov 2|8|-|1/4 to am
LSov 2|8|-|1/4 is worth A$138.24.
>rate 27 Lancre crowns, 56 Lancre shillings, 4 Lancre sixpences, 4 Lancre thruppences, 4 Lancre tuppences, one Lancre penny, 5 Lancre ha'pennies and 3 Lancre farthings to am
LSov 2|7|11|8 3/4 is worth A$138.14.

You can use a money changer to actually change one type of currency to another, or use banks that have branches in different areas.
