Money

Minikins refer to gold pieces as "gold", "bucks", "simoleons", or "dollars". There are a hundred cents (which are copper pieces) in a dollar. Denominations of coins include quarters and dimes.

Giantkin coin their own coins. These coins are too large to be exchanged by minikins, who would have to melt down the coins and re-mint them. A giant gold piece (ggp or "k's") is worth 1,000 gp and a giant copper (c's) is worth 100 gp. (Giants don't use silver.) Giants use gemstones for denominations over 100k. The World of Wormy does not use platinum or electrum pieces.

Minikin coins weigh 1/50th of a pound and are about two inches in diameter; giant coins weigh 20 lbs. each and are about one feet in diameter.)
