COPPER = 100% BRONZE = 20% SILVER = 10% ELECTRUM = 1% GOLD = .5% PLATINUM = .1% MITHRAL = .05% ADAMANITE = .025%The remainder of the coin is composed of nickel. The purity of these coins can be tested by bathing the coin in a special chemical bath readily available for approximately 1 sp per ounce. (enough to test 1000 coins) The liquid turns a particular color when exposed to the proper coin. Colors are as follows:
GREEN = COPPER YELLOW = BRONZE WHITE = SILVER BLACK = ELECTRUM GOLD = GOLD SILVER = PLATINUM BLUE = MITHRAL RED = ADAMANITE
Since the signing of the Ordoni Standard of Coinage it has become the standard of the Realms. Some people even refuse any coins that are not minted in the Ordoni Standard. The Ordoni standard coins are not the only coins of the Realms, but they are rapidly becoming the most widely used. The construction, weights, and values of the coins are standardized. Because of this they are the prefered coins of merchants and adventurers everywhere.
