The Pontunian dukaten is the name of the currency of Pontunia: the Silver Dukaten. The currency was created and managed by the Minister of Finance of Pontunia. The plural form is dukathy and one dukaten is subdivided into 100 pfennigs.

Etymology

Dukaten is inspired in name by the ducat, a historical currency of trade in Europe.

In early 2022, the currency was split into two currencies: one for tourists, in the vein of Cuban convertible peso, and one for home use. This was later rolled back in January 2023, and the currency was reformed closer to the predecimal currency of the United Kingdom, but still decimalized.

Coins

Pontunian coinage has not been made in physical form as of January 2023.
