Pyābi

A primary unit of currency of [Kyōti]/kyoti/, the pyābi is a coin imprinted from aluminum bronze. The denominations are: quarter, half, one, three, nine, twenty, sixty, and two hundred.

While there are local mints from various clans of the Mifuno Desert that control the designs on both sides of the coins along with adding various attempts to avoid counterfeits, there are certain common features:

  • All denominations have the same size starting with one inch and increasing a third inch across.
  • The edges of the coins are “reeded” with a denomination-specific design.
  • The weight of the coins are precisely measured.
  • The designs change annually.
