    Is currency capitalized?

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by RyanM, Apr 7, 2009.

    Is currency capitalized in a sentence?

    I ask because my story revolves around a created world with a created type of money. So for example:

    You owe me two hundred gold Rowls.
    or
    You owe me two hundred gold rowls.

    Just not sure, I think I know I just wanted to be sure. I recall reading a story where it as called Raq and I think it was always capitalized.

    Thanks,
    RyanM

    Yeah what cogito said. I mean you don't say "You owe me one hundred Dollars." You say, "You owe me one hundred dollars."
