The pecune was the currency unit utilised by Technocratic Renasia, and subsequently its successor, the Free State of Renasia created by Jacob Tierney just after the birth of the nation between 8 September and 10 September. It had a proposed subunit, the Meta, which was never realised in any form. It was proposed that every Pecune would break down into 100 Metas.

It was a banknote-based currency, with only one coin currently planned. Each note shows on the obverse the likeness of a famous Scientist or Mathematician, their signature, and a quote from the relevant persona to inspire the values that made these men great into the hearts of the population.

The currency was backed by the silver reserve, with each Pecune only one nth of the treasury silver's net worth at a point where n Pecunes are in circulation. Notes were issued in 2011/2012 and 2012/2013 printings.

The notes were printed on professional grade cotton paper, sized with gelatine, and with security "call numbers" and inks to prevent copying. The Pecune became defunct after the dissolution of Renasia on 5 May, 2015.

Devaluation of 2012

The Pecune was devalued in 2012, as the amount of silver they were back by was cut buy 52%. This, in turn, was traced to the fact that the first Pecune coins were being minted, and these contained 0.48g of silver inherently. The Government decided this amount of silver made an acceptable level of backing, and this redefined the entire system of worth in the currency to comply to these new standards.
