Currency in The Empire

The Constitution of the Empire of Lehmark formally recognises two official currencies, the Imperial Florin (f ) and the Australian Dollar (AUD).

The Imperial Florin is the primary currency used internally within the Borders of Lehmark, and is used to purchase of goods and services offered by the Imperial Government and private company's in Lehmark. Imperial Government uses Imperial Florins when paying the wages of Citizens who are employed within the Imperial Government. The Imperial Florin comes in the denominations of 50f, 20f, 10f, 5f, 2f, 1f.

Silver Standard Development

Starting in October 2019 the Empire converted to a Silver Standard, this was achieved via the Imperial Bank who coordinated purchases of silver bullion. The usage of a silver standard gives the Imperial Florin a "real world" value, and could potentially allow for purchases of goods and services outside of Lehmark in the future.

Between October 2019 and February 2020 the Imperial a total of 228.6 troy oz of silver bullion bars and this allows Lehmark to currently peg the value of 1 Florin to 0.00711g of silver.

As a result of the introduction of the silver standard a Currency Balance took place which meant a reduction in wages, government expenses and taxes. A total of 1,000,000f remain in circulation to allow for the current value of Florin to Silver.

The ultimate goal would be to purchase a total of 20kgs of silver (roughly 645 troy oz) and peg 1f to 0.02g of silver.
