The louré (/lure/; French pronunciation: [luʁe]; symbol Ł or L) is the currency of Ainin and Pisdara. Subdivided into 100 units known as centièmes (lit. hundredths), the currency consists of both coins denominated in centièmes (and in Ł1 and Ł2) and banknotes denominated in lourés. It is also sometimes abbreviated as ANL or ŁA to distinguish it from the Montecaran libra, which uses a similar symbol. The Aininian louré is a free-floating fiat currency and has been since 1951, when the gold standard was abandoned.
Apart from its use in Ainin, it is also the official currency of Pisdara owing the countries' strong economic and political ties. It is also informally used for transactions in much of Nautasia, especially Nautarya–Alouatan and Saheil. As a result of the expansive reach of the Aininian finance industry and the country's relative macroeconomic stability, the louré is also widely used in international transactions and is considered a central reserve currency.
