The Quebec Credit (symbol ÇÐ) is the official currency of Nation of Quebec. To outsiders the currency is officially known and written as the Quebec Credit in order to avoid confusion with other nations with the Credit as their currency. Inside Quebec it is simply known as the Credit. The currency is currently in use in Quebec's former territories Velkia and the Islands and Uchila Eru, however both nations are phasing the Credit out of circulation and adopting their own currencies after gaining their independence.
Prior to the adoption of the Credit, Quebec had used two official currencies for domestic business.
The Quebec Dollar (symbol QÐ) was adopted as the nation's official currency following its independence from Canada. The currency was based on Canadian currency in that it had both banknotes for larger denominations and coins for smaller denominations. The currency was eventually phased out of existence by 100ne as a result of the late 90s recession. The Dollar was replaced with the Gold-Pressed Latinum.
As a result of the recession the demand for gold and platinum increased so greatly that the nation adopted the Gold-Pressed Latinum as the official currency. This currency had no banknotes and existed as small gold pieces. The Bronze Piece was the lowest form of currency, equivalent to about 1 USD by today's standards while the Gold Bar was the most valued denomination, valued at 10,000 USD. The coins from the Quebec Dollar were still being used at this point.
|Gold-Pressed Latinum Denominations and Value (100-299ne)|
|Bronze Piece||1 USD||Bronze|
|Silver Piece||5 USD||Silver|
|Latinum Piece||20 USD||Platinum|
|Gold Piece||50 USD||Gold|
|Bronze Bar||100 USD||Bronze|
|Silver Bar||500 USD||Silver|
|Latinum Bar||1,000 USD||Platinum|
|Gold Bar||10,000 USD||Gold|
By around 295ne the demand for gold and latinum had decreased and as a result of this decreased demand the Credit was introduced as Nation of Quebec's official currency. This was mandated by the Quebec Credit Act of 300. The Credit remains the official currency to this day.
Similar to other nations the Credit has a system of coins which were redesigned rather than continue the use of the coins from the Quebec Dollar. The value of the coins is as follows: 1 cent, 5 cents, 10 cents, 25 cents, and the recently introduced 50 cents. The Franc and Double Franc are available in circulation, although are seldom used.

Renaming to Quark
In early 310, a vote was held to change the name of the Quebec Credit. 75% of votes chose to change the name to Quark while 25% chose to keep the currency's name as the Quebec Credit. The value and designs of the currency remain the same with the exception of the name of the currency on banknotes.
