ExperienceRO uses custom currencies. The main currencies are Platinum Coin, Mithril Coin, Event Token, and Donation Credit. Players also deal with Gold, Duelist Coins, WoE Token, and PvP Token.
Currencies (excluding Gold) cannot be dropped nor stored into guild storage.
The following currency conversions are as of November 2017. They are subject to change.
- 1 Platinum Coin = 8 Mithril Coins
- 1 Event Token = ~3.65 Platinum Coins
- 1 Donation Credit = 900-1000 Platinum Coins
Players can use the Coin Trader to convert Mithril Coins to Platinum Coins, and to purchase Platinum Zenies (an item worth 1 Platinum Coin and gives 2 billion zeny). 8,000 Mithril Coins can be converted directly to a Platinum Coin 1000 Box, for a price of 30 Event Tokens.

Mithril Coins are usually considered as a secondary currency. They can be directly farmed in Eden Dungeon and Eclage Dungeon.
They can be used to play at Lucky Me.
8 Mithril Coins = 1 Platinum Coin
Main article: Event Token
Event Tokens are tokens that are mostly used on the Event Genie. Players can earn 3 Event Tokens per hour or so automatically with the Hourly Rewards, as long as they are active (chatting, moving, battling). The Hourly Rewards system is stopped once the player is inactive (vending, using a pub, not moving, not fighting, not battling).
Event Tokens can also be earned from the following events (See Events page for more details):
Main article: Donation Credit
Donation Credits are a premium currency. Typically, players have to donate in order to receive Donation Credits, but they can be obtained in the game from Cluckers and Event Box. Donation Credits are used at the Redeemer.
A Platinum Zeny gives 2,000,000,000 zeny when you open it. Zeny is mostly used in classic NPC dealers/vendors at the mall, especially for purchasing Glistening Coat. The process to purchasing a Platinum Zeny is as follows:
Coin Trader > Purchase Zenies > Platinum Zeny
WoE Tokens are won from WoE and can also be obtained from Event Box.
PvP Tokens can be won from Kage.
Duelist Coins are won at the daily PvP event: The Duelist. There are three levels of Duelist Coins:
- Bronze Duelist Coin
- Silver Duelist Coin
- Gold Duelist Coin
GDC is the most valuable Duelist Coin, followed by SDC and GDC. GDC is awarded to the winner, SDC to the runner up, and GDC to the player who comes in the third place.
