Battlestar Galactica, Cubit Coin and Paper Set (Currency)

original movie prop

Cubits are a form of government-regulated currency used throughout the Twelve Colonies in both the Original Series and Re-imagined Series. The cubit typically comes in both a coin and paper form (Miniseries). The paper version is shown to come in denominations of 100, 500 (Act of Contrition) and 1000 (Miniseries, Colonial Day).

Coin versions of cubits also exist and bear the icon of the colony of origin on at least one side. Coins can be gold or silver (Black Market). Currency within the refugee fleet led by Galactica became technically worthless as pointed out by Tom Zarek. However, President Roslin's administration strives to address this.

Presidential aide Wallace Gray is instrumental in a move to return the Fleet to a currency-based economy to allow commerce in the Fleet to continue, so this form of currency is still utilized (Colonial Day).
