Aerial View of: Micronational Currency

 

Currency is important to developing an individual micronation’s culture. Many micronations have their own currency. In this week’s edition of Aerial View, I’ll be taking a look at various micronational currencies.

St.Charlian Pianeta

The St.Charlian Pianeta is used in the Federal Republic of St.Charlie and the wider St.Charlian Commonwealth. The currency was created after the demise of the Kingdom and subsequent formation of the Republic. The Pianeta is pegged to 0.50 Euros and has notes from 1  to 100 Pianeta. All of the banknotes and coins were designed by St.Charlian Prime Minister, Alexander Reinhardt.
