The Caerulean Pecuniam is the official currency of the Kingdom of Caeruleus since 55 Duomense 86 (12 August 2015), when it replaced the US Dollar.

History

The Pecuniam dates back to Duomense 85 (Summer 2014) when a handful of 1 Pecunium banknotes were printed. It featured Sir Jack I, Duke of Caeruleus' face on it. Shortly after, a new group of banknotes were being made, but Caeruleus abandoned the project due to a freeze in the computer. On 53 Duomense 85, however, the Pecuniams were designed with the help of Sir Henry, emailed to a co-worker of Queen Patricia, and were brought back to Caeruleus two days later. The currency was later found to be printed incorrectly, however it's still used.
