The Montecaran libra is the official currency of Montecara. It derives its name from the old Latin unit of measure for "pound," and originally indicated a value of one troy pound of silver. It is formally subdivided into 12 onçià, though coins have not been made in that denomination in decades. It is currently valued at approximately Ł5 to NSD 1.
