FunctionEdit

The currency used in the underworld is a special type of gold coin. While their use is universal in this criminal society, there is not a consistent exchange rate and it is unknown if the coins can be exchanged for cash. The coins can be exchanged for various goods and services in the underworld, be it a knife, an AR-15, a single night at The Continental, clean-up and disposal of one dead body, or a single bar tab.[1]</nowiki> </ref> The presentation of the coin immediately establishes one as a member of the underworld and thus also serves as a means of accessing the true services of disguised stores.

Despite the reliance on the gold coins, assassination contracts are assigned with a value designated in US dollars, possibly emphasizing that value is based on the individual.[1]

The gold coins have images and Latin phrases on both sides. On one side, a lion stands in front of a shield with a sun behind. At the top of the coin is the phrase "Ens Causa Sui," or "Something generated within itself." At the bottom are the Roman numerals MMI for 2001. On the reverse side is a person with a shield emblazoned with a cross. Below the person is a large laurel. Above the person is the phrase "Ex Unitae Vires," or "Out of unity comes strength."[2]</nowiki> </ref>
