Yes, that's the temple coinage. Coins with holes like that probably originated in Kralorela long ago, if it follows our Earth pattern.

Yes. And they carry themselves. Although they wander off and you don't know where they've gone to. But so do dollars and pounds, in my experience...
ps. I left out the 'dime' which a LARGE giant gave one of our PCs who helped return her child. It was about the size of a dinner plate and difficult to spend...
pps. I find the value per metal weight given in the official rules quite low, especially for gold and silver. I know it's a different world and all, but three kilograms of silver for a cow? Doesn't fit my ancient-to-medieval paradigm.
1 ENC of gold coins = 60 wheels = 1200 lunars = slave of moderate value...
