The main currency of the Core War nations is the DURGAT dollar which was invented as a means to promote trade between the DURGAT nations after the Core War. Although another well based currency is the Silaer, which uses everything from coins, notes and cards, to electronic plates and biometric transfer. The exchange rate between DURGAT and Silaer is 1 Silaer = 0.6 DURGAT.

Other currencies include:
  • The Zionite Pound
  • The CZS Neo-Pound
  • The Alliance Dollar (almost obsolete)

The Confederation has its own currency system:
  • Shillings (sh)
  • Farthings (f) 10s=1f
  • Florin (fl) 10f=1fl
  • Pence (p) 10fl=1p
  • Laurel (l) 10p=1L
  • Pounds (£) 10l=1£ (note placeing of sign)
  • Groat (gr) 10£=1gr
  • Guinea (g) 10gr=1g
  • Unite (u) 10g=1u
  • Sovereign (s) 10u=1s

1s currently is worth 1 DURGAT on the exchange rate. this means that a Sovereign is worth 1,000,000DURGAT dollars. This means despite the unpopularity of the Confederation currency itself, the Sovereign is common throughout regular trading space, mainly as a sort of medal (I've got enough money to mount sovereign on the wall etc). It is also easy for a person to carry around a sovereign in their pocket, rather than carrying around a large briefcase with 1,000,000 DURGAT dollars instead.

It should be worth noting since the collapse of the Confederated Nations, the disappearance of Ale Tura, the Dacoran Civil War and the degeneracy of the Canthin nations any form of unified currency as above has largely disappeared. Economies have devolved back to their original forms after the collapse of larger order.
