Recommended Posts

Contrary to popular belief, I always thought they were silver simply because...

Mina were actually a thing. In ancient Greece and the Middle East, which was a coin meant to represent 1 mina's worth of silver. So I always just assumed, considering it was historically based  on silver, that the coins in and of themselves were silver instead of gold. Also, I've always RP'd them as being silver coins. Also, another bit on Wikipedia defines it as

which basically just says "It's silver."

So yeah, I always thought it was silver.

To find the value of the mina in real life, we need to find the value of an item that could be found in real life, and then we can compare values.

 

A good sword, somewhere around 25% from the auction house, can run you dry 50 mina. So lets find how much a good strong sword would cost in medieval times; Reddit tells us it costs about 1 Pound in medieval times, or about 26,500 pounds today.

 

Alright, so to find the value, lets divide 26,500 by 50; that gives us 530

 

So in conclusion, a single mina is worth about 530£ or about 712.43$ american.
