There are several currencies on Serpent Isle: Monetari (Monitor), Filari (Fawn) and Guilders (Moonshade). Gold Coins are only used at the Inn of the Sleeping Bull. Money and other valuables can be converted into a different currency as shown below, but doing this incurs a fee (see tax rates). If you have the Second Circle spell False Coin you can make money when you need it instead of paying for conversion.

The conversion rate is like this: 1 Gold Bar = 2 Jewelry = 8 Gems = 20 Gold Nuggets = 200 Monetari = 400 Gold Coins = 600 Guilders = 800 Filari
