The Middle Isles
Your Majesty will doubtless recall the words of your predecessor and great-great grandfather, Angthu the Pious, who said “trust not in foreign coins, but Aquonan steel”. It is as true as ever that many other nations attempt to use debased coins, which is why measurement of coins and ingots are so important. Naturally, barter and trade is also prevalent, and the Aerrisan model of standardized coinage has yet to prove any improvement over our traditions. No, let the ingots and coins be weighed, and the debasers of currency face the most severe penalties.
