Coins and Money
The common coin of the Thracian Empire is the Copper Crown. 10 coppers make up 1 Silver Eagle, and 10 silver eagles are worth 1 Gold Sun. 1 gold sun is worth 100 copper crowns. Each coin weighs approximately 0.01 pound.
Very large sums of money are generally referenced in Gold Talents. A talent is derived from a weight equal to the weight of water in an amphora, roughly 60 pounds, or 6,000 coins. A talent (of gold) is worth 6,000 gold suns, 60,000 silver eagles, or 600,000 copper crowns.
The ancient Nethyarii also used platinum and electrum coins as money, and these ancient pieces are sometimes found in treasure hoards. Following with Nethyarii tradition, Cinnabar, Zahar, and the Dwarven Clans also mint platinum and electrum coins, worth around 5 gold suns and 5 silver eagles respectively. These are viewed with some suspicion by Thracian merchants.
