|“||Gold is the standard of currency, commonly called Golden Lions throughout the Realms, though only the Cormyrean coins carry the figure of the lion on the coin (Sembian gold coin designs vary from year to year but always retain a five-sided shape). The most common in the southern regions are the Amnite danter, though there are a number of other golder coins from Tethyr and Thay, as well as a number of private mints (including some adventuring parties).||”|
