A Dark Moon Rising
Though precise exchange rates of specific coinage vary from place to place, generally speaking most lands use a similar system for money:
1 gold ( G )= 10 silvers ( S ), 1 silver= 10 coppers ( C ).
The table below is a general guideline. The actual price of anything is, of course, subject to availability and local legal restriction.
