Default Imperialum Currency

Obviously with all the different cultures around, nothing is universal, but is there any currency within the Imperialum which is somewhat widely accepted/official?

I ask specifically because I am homebrewing fluff for my IG, and this relates to their paychecks.

id think that they use some sort of 'imperial credit'...something that may be called differently from wherever ones from but its the same bill, markings, ect.

for example the US dollar... lots of other countries have a dollar, or euro, but the things that one can buy with a dollar, nothing, is different from country to country...i hope that makes sense.

In Eisenhorn they talk about it, the money they use is called "Imperials" or simpy 'perials


I forget which book, Xenos I think, the one where he is disguised as a mutant

I'm pretty certain it is the Imperial Credit. It is possible that it is like Low Gothic and local dialec - both currencies exist both only the Imperial credit is universially accepted.

in the first horus heresy book one guy uses 'aquila' coins but it will proberly changed from then

in necromunda special game they use credits so i'd go with that

but the imperium theres over a million worlds so money proberly will be different from world to world with credits as standard for tradng between other worlds and systems
