explanation of the currency in the anime[1]

Lion is the standard currency scale in Ehrenfest. It is exchanged via seven-coin denominations or through the use of Merchant Guild Cards.

The currency is minted in the Sovereignty and is the same for all parts of Yurgenschmidt[2].

Single Lion coins also exist, but are rarely used for anything other than giving tips[4]. When situations require changes in denomination of less than 10 Lion, people usually prefer rounding the numbers or compensating with other items.
