Freebooters in the Star Lanes
The Star Lanes use a fairly universal metal coin economy. They are of roughly standardized weights, but are stamped in different shapes, with different images, by different nations. The most common coins are copper pennies, silver shillings and gold crowns. There are still many electrum coins left over from the Old Meteotl Empire, but they are rarely minted by current governments. Platinum and thaumalgam coins are used primarily for major purchases by nobles and merchant houses.
