Yeah I agree, it’s not overly accurate or consistent, to cite a more factual opinion, a German king was said to have bought a suit of plate armour for around 1,300 gold coin… http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/hd/aams/hd_aams.htm, how that translates to the silver of the time idk.

Regardless it does feel like we’ve got a bit of a D&D currency. There’s just something about it that doesn’t feel like it suits the low-fantasy setting the way silver would, as the value of the gold is seeming disproportionately less valuable than the grain my troops eat.

I would love for gold to still remain perhaps in the capacity you mention, or as a reward nobles give you that you can cash in like a cheque.

The OP’s suggestion seems like it might be a simple enough change that I like the suggestion, obviously there’ll hardly be any tears shed if the depicted value of gold remains though.
