* ''VideoGame/{{Wildstar}}'' uses this system, which is odd seeing as it's set in what more or less comes to a ScienceFiction SaturdayMorningCartoon.

* ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' uses copper, silver, gold, and platinum coins. 100 coins of a lower denomination are equal to one higher-denomination coin. In fact, for ease of storage, 100 coins of a lower denomination can be ''crafted into'' a higher-denomination coin and when collecting coins, they automatically turn into the higher-denomination and the opposite occurs when buying from an NPC. How you craft a lot of copper into a little silver (or silver into gold, etc) is [[MST3KMantra best not thought about too much]].

* ''TabletopGame/AnimaBeyondFantasy'' plays this straight ''a la'' ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', except that 1 gold coin equals to 100 silver coins being also ''a lot'' of money. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that all the (known) world was ruled by the same Empire for centuries.

* ''{{VideoGame/Fallout 2}}'' replaced the bottle cap currency of the original game with generic gold coins, which were later established as being NCR dollars. The New California Republic ended up getting shafted by this decision when the Brotherhood of Steel simply attacked their gold mines and gold supplies, leaving the money backed by nothing. The post-apocalyptic world quickly went back to using caps (which were backed by the water merchants of the Hub) while the NCR in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' switched to paper money, which is down to about half its face value in caps. Meanwhile, Caesar's Legion is still making the golden aureus and silver denarius as their own currency, with the aureus being valued at 100 caps. Just like in Imperial Rome, the aureus is divided into 25 denarii.

** These days, copper tends to be worthless in inter-player currency exchanges, while Silver tends to be treated the same way pennies (or similar currency) would be in real life. In vanilla game, one Gold was a non-trivial amount of money and gathering several hundred of these for an epic mount could take months. Today, quest rewards and selling VendorTrash at maximum level give 20-50 gold at a time, and many players have accumulated hundreds of thousands of gold.

* The ''Literature/FightingFantasy'' books (at least, the fantasy ones set on the world of Titan) have 1 gp = 10 sp. Some of the books mention copper or bronze pieces. ''Titan'', the UniverseCompendium, says gold and silver coins from different countries their own names (Kings and Queens, Suns and Moons, etc.) and different designs, but they're all basically the same size and weight and worth the same amount. There are also oddities in some cultures such as Port Blacksand's Wyvern, a smaller gold coin worth 5 sp; in other words a half gp.

* There's a suggestion of this in ''Discworld/TheWeeFreeMen'', where Granny Aching is first offered a hundred silver dollars to solve the Baron's problem and, when she turns it down, is offered fifty gold dollars, suggesting that, as far as the people of the Chalk are concerned, what a coin is called is less important than what it's made of.
