The Barbett was once the national currency of the Empire of Barbettia, and represented the wealth of the Barbettian economy as a whole, including physical assets. Multiple coins had been minted by the Kings of Barbettia, and these coins used to be in circulation through the Empire of Barbettia. The Barbettian Mint , as of 2017, is no longer active. There is no current use for the Barbett, as the new constitution defined there to be no official currencies in Barbettia, creating a freer market. Barbettian coins are now historical artifacts.
