Glossary Entry: Credits, Standard Galactic

A standard currency used throughout the Galaxy and, indeed, throughout the civilized Multiverse, instituted to solve the problems inherent in trading between planets (their states, provinces and municipalities) that use varying local currencies. Under the old, unregulated system–really more of a free-for-all than a system–one bad financial apple could bring down an entire sector. (See: Bajar Shilling) However, the use of Standard Galactic Credits does not preclude the use of said local currencies, and natives of this planet or that will usually try and deal in the currency that gives them the better pay-off. Standard Galactic Credits are the usual unit of exchange used in property appraisals, whatever your zone or sector. They can be obtained from almost any currency exchange concern as both coin and promissory notes.
