Fictional Currency of popular SciFi TV, Movies and Literature.

I had to look up the Fictional Currency of many different Sci-Fi worlds for an online poll, so I figured I’d share what I found here:

Galactic credits standard

The Galactic Credit Standard, simply called a credit or abbreviated to cred, colloquially referred to as Republic Dataries, and later known as the Imperial Credit, was the main currency in use in the galaxy since the time of the Galactic Republic.

Agatean rhinus


The standard unit of currency in the Agatean Empire in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld. In its usual form as a pure gold coin, it can be divided into half-rhinu and quarter-rhinu pieces, for ease of making small purchases.


Flanian Pobble Beads

Fictional Currency from Douglas’ Adams “Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy”. It is only exchangable for other Flanian Pobble Beads and is therefore useless.



Fictional currency of Star Trek, particularly Ferengi’s.



Fictional Currency of the BBC SciFi comedy “Red Dwarf”. The dollarpound is a fictional currency used in both the series and the novels.


Brandar tiles

The fictional currency of the series Farscape.



The fictional currency used in the cult classic film Spaceballs.
