The aurodium standard was a currency standard that existed in the galaxy. The standard shared its name with aurodium,[1] a rare and valuable metal[2] used in currency.[3] By the time of the Clone Wars, the Galactic Republic had long abandoned the standard and was instead partnering with major banks, such as the InterGalactic Banking Clan and Bank of the Core, to hold a reserve of credits to make sure the Republic's currency remained stable.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The aurodium standard was first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in the roleplaying game sourcebook Rise of the Separatists, which was released in 2019 by Fantasy Flight Games.[1] The standard was originally introduced in the Star Wars Legends continuity via the article "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Praji," which was written by Nathan O'Keefe and published on StarWars.com on February 5, 2009.[4] In real world, the gold standard is an obsolete monetary system where the value of a nation's currency is directly tied to gold,[5] the Latin word for which is aurum.[6]
