TRADE BAR VALUES
Trade bars are mainly used by merchants and banks throughout the realms. These bars are minted by Nations, and or powerful merchant houses. Each such trade bar is stamped with a mint marking so that it's origin can be traced. The mint markings are usually of a highly intricate, and ornate design. So as to deter forgeries. All trade bars bearing authentic mint markings are guaranteed by the minter to contain less than 5% impurities. These trade bars are rarely seen outside very strong vaults. And are usually safeguarded in the most ingeneious manners.
