Norrath has a simple monetary system. It consists of pieces of copper, silver, gold, and platinum. Each material is worth 100 of the lesser. For instance, 2 platinum = 200 gold = 20,000 silver = 2,000,000 copper.
Most players of the game, as well as the game itself, abbreviate the costs by simply using the first letter. For instance, 5 gold, 27 silver and 18 copper can be written as 5g27s18c. The game uses commas: 5g, 27s, 18c.
To move money, click and hold a coin denomination while dragging.
If you wish to move just a single coin, hold the [Ctrl] key while clicking and dragging.
To move a portion of a stack of coins, hold the [Shift] key while clicking and dragging; a window will open in which you may specify how much money you want to pick up.
(This method may be used at bankers to 'make change'. If you have a higher currency in the bank, you may use the shift-drag on a lower currency icon as if you had 100 of that currency.)
Within this Wiki, Coin can be expressed (with proper formatting) by using the Template: Coin.

Gil Toss, also known as Zeninage, $Toss, GP Rain, Coin, Spare Change, or GilToss, is an ability that appears in many games in the Final Fantasy series. It is usually associated with the Samurai or Gambler class. It involves dealing damage at the expense of gil. It usually targets all opponents.
Harley has Gil Toss as one of her commands.
Zeninage is the Level 2 ability of the Samurai class, and it is the Samurai's default ability. It deals massive damage, at the cost of a lot of gil.
Setzer Gabbiani and Gogo can use Gil Toss (GP Rain in the original) by equipping the Heiji's Jitte Relic (called Coin Toss in the original). The amount of GP used for Gil Toss is equal to the user's Level x30. Damage for Gil Toss is as follows.
When the ability is used by enemies, the enemies will use the amount of GP they would drop instead of the party's GP.
Amarant Coral can use the ability Spare Change to throw money at a single enemy. The ability is learned from the Poison Knuckles and Rune Claws for 40 AP. The formula used to determine how much Gil is thrown is as follows.
The amount of damage Gil Toss can deal is as follows.
Gil Toss is available as a Technick. It can be bought for 35 License points. While it normally does as much damage as gil tossed (9,999 gil = 9,999 damage), damage will be divided mostly evenly by however many enemies are in the radius.
Moogle Jugglers are able to use Gil Toss. It does 30 damage every time and costs 30 gil to use each time.
Moogle Jugglers are able to use Gil Toss. It does varying damage based on the amount of gil thrown which is selected by the player from the amounts either 10, 100, 1,000, or 10,000 gil. The move has been made much weaker since the prequel, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.

|Also called?||Gp, gold pieces, gold, gold coins, money, cash, coins.|
|Approximate value||1 coins|
Coins (also known as gold, gold pieces, or gp) are the most common form of currency in RuneScape. They can be used to represent the value of virtually every single item in the game, as well as various services offered throughout. They are the most often traded item; players prefer to trade their services or items in exchange for coins more than any other item. When the number of coins in a single stack exceeds 99 999, then the examine text reads "____ x Coins", where the blank is the exact number of coins in the stack.While if there is less than that the examine text reads "Lovely Money!".
In RuneScape, coins appear as small gold coins, also noted by some people that they look like nuggets, roughly cylindrical, and are stackable. In Grim Tales, it was revealed that coins have more intricate designs imprinted on their faces, although they usually appear small, making it difficult for players to notice it.
According to Saradomin, coins are minted by the Fief. He doesn't give more detail as to who or what the Fief is, but judging from the meaning of "Fief" it is likely to be one of the human kingdoms (i.e. Misthalin).
Not surprisingly, alchemy spells cannot be cast on coins. If a player attempts it, a message will inform the player that Coins are already made of gold.... You can, however, turn other gold items (such as gold ore and gold bars) into coins using alchemy spells.
When you kill an NPC that drops coins and you kill another one in the same spot and it too drops coins, the coins stack.
Beside coins, players commonly refer to the RuneScape currency as gold, gold pieces, gp, cash, or money.
One thousand coins (1,000) is usually called 1k. Similar to the metric system, the "k" stands for "kilo," which is Greek for "thousand." On German-language servers, the symbol for "k" is changed to "T", since "Tausend" is German for thousand.
One million (1,000,000) coins is usually called 1M or 1mil. Both can be made into larger numbers, such as 300k meaning 300,000 coins.
One billion coins is referred to as 1bil or 1B. No player can hold more than 2,147,483,647 coins.
A stack of gold has a small, coloured text on the upper-left hand corner of the stack. With larger stacks of money—as with all stackable items—both the colour of the text and the stack's examine text change depending on the amount of gold in the stack.

2,147,483,647 (or 231-1) is the highest number that it is possible to store in a 32-bit signed integer in the Java programming language. If a player attempts to withdraw or pick up coins while carrying the maximum amount of coins, it is stated that there is not enough inventory space. If a player reaches the maximum amount of coins, he or she can store extra money either in items or within the Grand Exchange by placing an offer, canceling the offer, and leaving the coins in the collection box. Each Grand Exchange slot can also hold 2,147,483,647 coins. To avoid using up Grand Exchange slots, extra money can also be spent in the purchase of items that are expected to not go down in price (such as items that are held up by a high alchemy value). A perfect item to buy to store extra money are Spirit Shards - they can be easily mass bought and sold for a flat rate of 25 gp. Considering the same limit applies to Spirit Shards, you can store 53,687,091,175 coins, and if you buy Spirit shards packs, you can store up to 268,435,455,875,000 coins!
Alternate terms for coins are occasionally used by NPCs in mainstream RuneScape. Examples of these include the following:
Some players used to purchase RuneScape coins in exchange for real-world money using sites such as eBay. Although players could potentially gain monetary value within RuneScape by such means, this method is forbidden by Jagex: Rule 12 of the RuneScape website forbids the trading of RuneScape items for items or services outside of RuneScape. Doing so can result in a permanent ban with no second chances.
Within RuneScape, there is a safe trading system that ensures both sides fulfil their end of the deal. Trading outside of RuneScape, however, increases the likelihood of another party stealing your real-world money and not fulfilling the terms of the trade. Players who fall victim to this have no remorse from Jagex, and indeed will probably be banned if they admit to having participated in such practices.
With the trade limits imposed with the Unbalanced trade update and other game changes like the restriction of player killing to a small area in a few worlds, Jagex made it extremely hard, if not impossible, to trade RuneScape gold for real-world money and has made it very difficult for gold sellers to function.
