Currency

Actual monetary value is frequently determined by weight in precious metals, since the content of coins from different nations does vary. The following scale is used in Tar Valon and Andor, who are believed to have the heaviest coins in the Westlands:

10 copper pennies = 1 silver penny 10 silver pennies = 1 silver mark 10 silver marks = 1 silver crown 10 silver crowns = 1 gold mark 10 gold marks = 1 gold crown

Altara, by contrast, have larger coins containing less gold or silver. Their relative values are as follows:

10 copper pennies = 1 silver penny 21 silver pennies = 1 silver mark 20 silver marks = 1 silver crown 20 silver crowns = 1 gold mark 20 gold marks = 1 gold crown

In other countries, the conversion rate will be different.
