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

i think that there might be a type of credit like the Guilder Credits in Necromunda. a coin or note representing like store credit or something along those lines. but i know that all imperial planets don't pay their tithes in cash but in food, tech and people

Dark Heresy RPG says the official currency is the throne gelt (maybe that's just for that sector though?).

Besides, we all know the real currency of the imperium is lives.

They mentioned in Gaunt's ghosts a currency called the Imperial Mark, I think.

In the Eisenhorn book he uses gold coins at one part.
