 Middle-earth in Prices
Mostly just silver and copper coins are used: 1 sp = 100 cp
Smallest change are tin coins: 1 cp = 10 tp
Gold coins are quite rare: 1 gp = 10 sp
Mithril coins are extremely rare:
1 mp = 10 - 100 gp
Value varies, official price is 10 gp.
I don't bother to use the other Rolemaster coins (10 bp (bronze) = 1 sp,10 ip (iron) = 1 tp)
