Gold coins are the currency of Godville.

Usually abbreviated to 'gold', a hero can acquire it in many ways. They can dig for it, find it in the corpses of monsters, win it in duels and get it in a multitude of other different ways. A hero can use their wealth to purchase Equipment for themselves, for money makes the world go round. Once a hero has over 3000 Gold coins, they can forge a shiny new Gold brick for their god's Temple with a little help from their god. After a hero has made a full temple (a value of 3,000,000 coins), 10,000 coins can be donated at the alter for experience growths.

The pantheon of greed is where the heroes are ranked for their wealth. The greediest heroes who own the mightiest bank accounts appear near the top of this pantheon's rankings, but it is notoriously hard to stay there, for heroes are always spending their hard-earned cash in order to buy themselves better equipment to give themselves a better chance in Duels.

Properties

The physical attributes of gold coins are as follows:

  • Weight: 28.4 grams
  • Volume: 1.47 cm3
  • Thickness: 3 mm
  • Diameter: 25 mm

The above numbers have been calculated as follows:

Gold coins are about the same size as chocolate coins.[citation needed] A typical chocolate coin has a thickness of 3mm and a diameter of 2.5mm.[1]

The coin can be approximated to a cylinder with a 1.25cm radius and 0.3cm height, therefore their volume can be calculated to 1.47cm3.

The density of gold is 19.30 g/cm3, so to find the weight of one coin we multiply 1.47cm3 by 19.30 g/cm3 to give us a weight of approximately 28.4g.

The 1.47 cm3 volume, 25 mm diameter, and 3 mm height of a Godville coin is very similar to the following:

  • United States 1 dollar coin (1.46 cm3 and 26.49 mm x 2.00 mm)
  • British 1 pound coin (1.41 cm3 and 22.5 mm x 3.15 mm)
  • Euro 2 euro coin (1.48 cm3 and 25.75 mm x 2.20 mm)
