Borost:Currency

From Bestiary of the Hypogriph

There are many kinds of currency in Borost, most of which are only accepted one or a few freeholds. The single currency in the continent to be accepted in all realms-- except for Chtzulhand and the Serpent-folk, of course -- is the Zeiden guilder, the standard currency of the influential Zeiden Bank which operates branches in all realms.

Zeiden guilder[edit]

The Zeiden guilder is the most widely-accepted unit of currency in Borost. It is a gold coin, subdivided into two silver coins worth 50% of the gold unit (called Zeiden thalers). The thalers are further divided into fifty small bronze coins (known as Zeiden tokens).

They are summarized here:
