There are three types of currency in Elanthia: Kronar, Lirum, and Dokora, as well as one obsolete currency called the Dira.

Currency Types

Each province uses one currency type for all official and shop transactions.

Kronars

Kronars are used in the province of Zoluren, and are the only coin accepted at vaults regardless of location.

The KRONAR is a round coin, with no edges. The circumference of the coin slopes downward, giving the edge of the entire coin a sharp, almost weapon-like look to it. On one side, a minuscule map of the contiguous landmass with the words ZOHLU REN underneath. The reverse shows the broad, patient face of an ox - symbolizing Elanthia as Truffenyi's planet.

Lirums

Lirums are used in the provinces of Therengia and Qi'Reshalia.

Named after Lirum, the wife of Akroeg.

Shaped like a diamond with rounded edges, the LIRUM is the only coin of Elanthia to feature the likeness of a person. Along the corners on both sides of the coin, tiny roses have been stamped. One side features a stoic looking human woman with her hair in a bun. Centered under the portrait is the name LIRUM. On the reverse side, a simple seven-pointed star is situated in the middle with the words FEAS, KHALOR, HALEEN around the coin.

Dokoras

Dokoras are the coin of the realm in Ilithi and Forfedhdar.

Oblong in shape, the DOKORA is the heaviest of the Elanthian currencies because of the weighted raised edges it possesses. These weighted edges exist to counterbalance a square hole in the middle of each DOKORA. The origins of the DOKORA are in Ilithi, although the coin is used elsewhere, and so one side shows two lotus blooms flanking the square hole, while the other side depicts a single cloud above and the words "Ylosh Sampul" below.

Notes

Monetary coins are a special type of item. When held normally, they do not count against your total inventory, but do have weight and will impact your encumbrance if carrying a large amount. They are also susceptible to theft.

Dropping coins will create coin items on the ground. Coins may be placed in and retrieved from moneybelts to protect them from thieves.

Non-Standard Currency

Non-standard currencies are former or current forms of currency that are treated as items and not accepted as payment at most locations.

Dira

Dira were the currency of the Empire of the Seven-Pointed Star, but are no longer valued as money. Instead, they are considered collector's items. See Dira for more information.

Each Emperor minted a coin of his or her predecessor, with their likeness and name along with the dates of rule. DIRA were minted in pure silver with high raised edges which was then surrounded by a thin band of the metal of the denomination of the DIRA. Much like present day currency, the DIRA came in copper, bronze, silver or gold. Platinum was not yet needed. Unfortunately, over the passage of time, the thin bands of these denomination markers have either worn off the coins or been removed, leaving most DIRA today as only the plain silver "internal" coin.
Note: For reference, this means the coin was minted in silver, then an additional band of copper, bronze, silver, or gold was added to the outside to note the denomination.

Oravir Slivers

The vykathi of the Hive use slivers of oravir as some form of currency. While not used by any other race, some researchers are willing to exchange them for more common coins.

Oravir slivers are just that. They are not uniform in shape or size (although larger ones are not used or broken down into smaller slivers for storage purposes) and have no markings on them whatsoever.
