Currency


The standard currency is the curved ring-shaped silver Ké (贝), made of ten flat ringed bronze Dan (石贝). In turn, ten ke makes one spade-shaped golden Wūguī (烏龜贝). The rare knife-shaped golden Dāo (刀贝) is worth one hundred wugui and is a restricted currency.

One hundred Ke is often grouped together on a string and is called a Chuàn (串贝), or chuan ke.
