The Liao Currency System, in which the most valuable currency is the Jin Tael, was instituted in 1500 after the Liao split from the Chinese currency system. The system officially has three separate coins one gold, one silver and tone copper. The currency reform is nearly the same as the Chinese currency and the main coins are the Golden Jin Tael (from the Chinese and Liao weight measurement Liang or Tael), the Silver Yin Tael and the copper Wen (from the Chinese and Liao word Wen, meaning a tenth or literature). The Liao Currency is also modeled upon the Pskov Currency.
