The simple “coins” are pieces of crystal, imbued with a musical tone or note, they might justly be referred to as solid music. Tone deaf people often dislike dealing with elven money as they cannot hear the differences in the various basic coins. As more notes are added to a “coin, its weight and size grow. After the first eight notes the size stabilizes and from that point on the coins are all the same size and weight, differentiated only by their music. An Elven money changer or someone else with the proper training or equipment can combine/separate Elven notes into larger/smaller collections of notes or songs.
