Duke's currency is the Sheka. One Sheka is equivalent to $0.20 USD. They are produced by the Bank of Duke, from which printed banknotes are redistributed. The Bank of Duke produces the quantity of Sheka banknotes assigned to it, puts them into circulation, withdraws worn notes, takes part in the search for and experimentation of new security features and contributes to the definition of common standards for the quality of the notes in circulation and the fight against counterfeiting.

Special edition

Duke issues commemorative currency upon occasion. The newest commemorative issue was printed to celebrate 1 year of independence. In late 2018 2 days after the 1 year independence day anniversary, the government designed new banknotes and printed them out. They are more useful than the older ones and they are newer and have better designs.
