The Aoish credit was a near-universally accepted medium of exchange by the time of the Idiran-Culture War.


The Aoish had a target value range for the credit. While this was sometimes violated the credit's value was stable enough to make it a viable form of capital storage in uncertain times.[1]


The credit could be exchanged for a certain mass of a stable element or an area on a free Orbital. The Aoish guaranteed convertibility and was never known to have defaulted once by the time of the Idiran-Culture War.[1]


Credits were physically available as coins or notes in denominations of Tenths, Hundredths, and Billion.[1]
