The information in this article is not canon but fan-made.

In canon, we are made aware of three types of currency. The first is Dinar, which are used in Parthevia in Sindria. The second is Fulus (sing. Fals, translated as Farsu in the text), which are used in Reim, and the third is Huang, which is paper money used in the Kou Empire.

Historical Equivalents Edit

In the medieval middle east, the same era when One Thousand and One Nights was compiled, the Umayyad Caliphate used Dinar (gold coins), Dirham (silver coins) and Fulus (copper coins) as currency. In most modern countries that still use Dinar and Fulus, 1000 Fulus is equal to 1 Dinar.

Under the assumption that Fals is a subunit of Dinar, the use of this denomination for currency seems widespread, with Parthevia, Sindria, and Reim being confirmed users. It seems likely that it is used in Pre-Kou Bill Balbadd as well. However, the exchange rate is not necessarily consistent across borders. In the Balbadd Arc, Ja'far suggests that Sindria's currency is a separate entity from that of its neighbors and that it must be converted. Rather than one widespread currency, they seem to be common names for separate currencies, much in the same way the Canadian and American dollars are not the same.

Huang does not have a historical equivalent, but it may be a subset in a group of denominations that are classified as "Kou Bills."
