The Mordan Talent

For our and your convenience, we have decided to propose the Talent (proposed currency code: RMT) as the national currency of the Humanist Republic of Mordan. On this we have discussed monetary issues, but we never went so far as to give the currency a name. We have noticed that this has led to uneasy situations when we wrote about topics involving monetary examples.

One Mordan Talent will be subdivided into thousand Sestertii (singular: Sestertius). Though most transactions in Mordan [or in other space settlements] will involve electronic payments (such as debit cards, internet banking and stored value cards), coins and notes will still be used. Our proposal is to have coins of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500 Sestertii and of 1, 2 and 5 Talents; further they will be notes of 10, 20 and 50 Talents.

    1. Well, the ancient talent represented a certain amount of gold. Last time I checked the gold price (last week) it was just below 1,300 USD/oz.

        1. I have checked wikipedia. The talent was an amount of silver, but then still a 1,000 talents would be about 26 million USD [2012 values].
