There are various currencies in the world of Eora, where Pillars of Eternity is set. They have different values and are used in different cultures, some of them more common and less valuable than others.

From the game-playing point of view, the player hasn't to deal with these differences, as all currencies convert to Copper Pands, "cp" or "copper", after picking them up. Furthermore, all values in both, the player's inventory and in stores, are displayed in "cp" – coppers.

Bux stalwart boney icon.png Stalwart Boney Stalwart's residents use assorted pieces of carved fish bone as a supplemental currency.

Stalwart, White March 3 The White March - Part I
Copper pand icon.png Copper Pand This is a high-volume Dyrwoodan currency used in everyday trade and is the basis for most transactions. Free Palatinate of Dyrwood 1 Pillars of Eternity
Copper skeyt icon.png Copper Skeyt The skeyt is the standard currency used in the Aedyr Empire and areas under their direct control. Like the Dyrwoodan pand, it is a small copper coin. Aedyr Empire 1 Pillars of Eternity

Copper awld icon.png Copper Awld Glanfathans use relatively large, crude copper coins called awld ("knot") that are worth more than a Dyrwoodan pand due to their high copper content. Eir Glanfath 2 Pillars of Eternity
Bux durgan cogwheel icon.png Durgan Cogwheel The settlements across the White March used a variety of bronze coins as currency. These "cogwheels" were used in Durgan's Battery, where they were created in a two-part process. The distinctive cog-shaped planchets were cast in bronze. While cooling, they were struck in iron dies. The coins are still quite valuable in the Eastern Reach due to their high copper content. Durgan's Battery 4 The White March - Part I
Silver lusce icon.png Silver Lusce The most common Vailian coin found in the Dyrwood is the silver lusce ("fish"), so-named for its resemblance to the scales of a fish. Vailian Republics 3 Pillars of Eternity
Bux readceran fenning icon.png Readceran Fenning Readceran fennings are typically stamped with the Penitential Regency's heraldry, or else with images of the vorlas plant associated with Readceras' once-thriving dye exports. The coin's value is identical to that of the silver Aedyran fenning using throughout the Empire and its colonial territories, though Readceran coins are not nearly as widespread.

Golden scelling icon.png Golden Scelling The golden Aedyre scelling is the equivalent of the Dyrwoodan duc, equal in size and value. Aedyr Empire 12 Pillars of Eternity
Golden oble icon.png Golden Oble A rare coin even in the Vailian Republics, the golden oble ("double") is a large gold coin. It is mostly used by the extremely wealthy. Vailian Republics 18 Pillars of Eternity
Adra eniach icon.png Adra Eniach Not currency in the traditional sense, eniachs are awarded to Glanfathans for noteworthy deeds. They are palm-sized, intricately-carved discs of adra that commemorate the deeds of the recipient. Eir Glanfath 60 Pillars of Eternity
Bux azata shell icon.png Azata Shell These small, egg-shaped shells are harvested from common azata sea snails. Naturally smooth and shiny, they come in myriad colors and are the most common currency of the Huana. Huana 1 Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
Bux azata nui shell icon.png Azata Nui Shell Azata nui shells come from snails up to three times the size of the common azata. Relatively rare, the azata nui commands a higher price in trade. Huana 5 Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
Bux azata shell string icon.png Azata Shell String A leather string of exactly five azata shells selected for exceptional similarity to each other and garnering a much higher value than the individual shells normally would. Non-Huana are often unable to discern the quality of an azata string, so unscrupulous Huana have taken to duping Vailians and Rauatans with strings of shells that other Huana reject as counterfeit. Foreigners rarely find this as funny as the locals do. Huana 20 Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
Bux obsidian flake icon.png Obsidian Flake Obsidian occurs naturally throughout the Deadfire due to the regions high volcanic activity. Though it is brittle, obsidian can be knapped to create an incredibly sharp edge. Huana use the material for various cutting instruments, including knives and spear points. When Huana come across large chunks of obsidian suitable for knapping, they break them into spalls and flakes for trade or personal use. Huana 3 Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
Bux obsidian spall icon.png Obsidian Spall Obsidian occurs naturally throughout the Deadfire due to the regions high volcanic activity. Though it is brittle, obsidian can be knapped to create an incredibly sharp edge. Huana use the material for various cutting instruments, including knives and spear points. When Huana come across large chunks of obsidian suitable for knapping, they break them into spalls and flakes for trade or personal use. Huana 12 Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
Bux baby pearl icon.png Baby Pearl Small, immature pearls are frequently recovered by Huana oyster divers. While not as valuable as mature pearls, they are still used as currency throughout the Deadfire. Huana 8 Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
Bux brass teo icon.png Brass Teo The base currency of the Kingdom of Rauatai is the brass teo (hand). Though the coin bears no resemblence to a hand, Rauatans named the coin for its ability to pay for goods and services, after a common saying, "The hand performs the labor." Rauatai 1 Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
Bux bronze hon icon.png Bronze Hon The hon is an odd-looking half-coin, created from a bronze ōa by simply breaking it in half along a deep groove in the casting. The hon was created during a period of Rauatai's history when the ranga nui did not want to create any more currencies. Instead, he had the royal mint modify the existing dies to include a depression in the casting. Rauatai 4 Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
Bux bronze oa icon.png Bronze Ōa A large, bronze coin, the Rauatan ōa is the second most commonly-used currency in their kingdom. It is the original form of bronze hon, which is commonly broken in half for a half-value coin. Rauatai 8 Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
Bux old bronze oa icon.png Old Bronze Ōa Though quite rare in the present day, old bronze ōas continue to circulate in Rauatai and among their trading partners. The only difference between an old ōa and a new ōa is that the former lacks the casting depression that allows the coin to be broken into two bronze hons of equal value. Because of their rarity and slightly higher bronze content, the old ōas are a little more valuable. Younger Rauatans sometimes jokingly refer to "grandpa's ōa" as a symbol of an earlier time before the kingdom's rapid expansion and militarization. Rauatai 9 Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
Bux silver utoki icon.png Silver Utoki The largest Rauatan coin in common circulation, the silver utoki is used for large trade transactions. Several generations of utoki ("crown") have been minted, the image on the obverse changing with each ranga nui. The reverse always features a physical crown.
