COIN VALUES

Coin values can be expressed as approximate values, as there are indications in the Scrolls (John Norman's Gor books) that values may be higher. Coins of higher denomination are most often referred to as "tarsk," "tarn," or simply by the metal they are cast in (such as silver).

 
UNIT EQUIVALENT EARTH EQUIVALENT
1 Copper Bit 1 Copper Bit (CB) 12-1/2 Cents
2 Copper Bits 2 Copper Bits 25 Cents
8 Copper Bits 1 Copper (C) $1 American
100 Copper 1 Silver (S) $100
10 Silver 1 Gold (G) $1,000
2 Gold 1 Double-weight Gold (DWG) $2,000


SLAVES

The price of a slave depends upon the training and beauty perceived by the buyer. Prices range anywhere from 2C to 40G. Some examples of typical pricing below:

ITEM DESCRIPTION GOREAN EARTH
Kettle New to being a slave or one used for menial labor 6C $6
Well-trained Skill and knowledge levels are intermediate 10C-30C $10-$30
Pleasure Trained to please sexually, as well as overall high skill and knowledge 40C-75C $40-$75
Pleasure, Excellent Trained to exquisite pleasure skills and knowledge 80C-1S $80-$100
  The high end or anything above it would be an extremely rare thing based on more than her breeding. It would be highly unrealistic for typical roleplay.    
Exotic Bred and trained for a specific characteristic 2S-2G $200-$2,000
High Status Daughter of a rich merchant or ubar 2G-4G $2,000-$4,000
