Dira

Jump to: navigation, search

Dira are old imperial era coins of varying value and rarity. They may be collected, traded, and redeemed, much like trading cards. Mithlin pays 29,130 Dokoras for a complete set of Imperial dira, GIVE your case to Mithlin for sales options. ASK MITHLIN ABOUT SELL to see what coins he has for sale.

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.

What's a Dira:

You may have noticed finding something called "an Imperial dira" in a treasure. Looking at it tells you it's an old coin from the days of the Seven-Star Empire bearing the image and dates of one of the emperors. If you have a suspicion that some of these might be -very- old and perhaps -very- valuable, you may be right. It makes sense to think that the older the coin, the more valuable it might be, but what do pawnbrokers know? They're not numismatists! You will be able to pawn the diras, but don't expect a knowledable appraisal at a pawnshop.

Going OOC, this is a new system of collectibles, and you can buy cases to keep the diras in from the Coin of the Realm shop. Eventually (like a couple of weeks when I know that everything is working as intended), you'll be able to sell and perhaps buy coins at that same shop. In the meantime, please report any problems you encounter.

Thanks, and have fun, Bartlebee
