Greef Karga paid Din Djarin in Calamari Flan.

"I can do Calamari Flan… But I can only pay half."
―Greef Karga[1]

Calamari Flan was a form of currency that had a disc-shaped white and blue coinage. While Flan could maintain its shape, it would squish under pressure unlike the rigid New Republic credit.[1] Around 9 ABY,[2] due to the recent collapse of the Galactic Empire, the Mandalorian bounty hunter Din Djarin refused to accept Imperial credits as payment from Greef Karga, an agent of the Bounty Hunters' Guild, for capturing four bounties.[1]

Karga claimed that the Imperial credits could still be spent, but when Djarin got up to leave, the guild agent instead offered Calamari Flan, although he only possessed enough to pay half. Djarin accepted the payment.[1]

Djarin later used Calamari Flan on the estuary moon of Trask to pay a Mon Calamari server for information.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

Calamari Flan first appeared in Chapter 1 of the 2019 Disney+ television series The Mandalorian,[1] which aired on November 12, 2019.[4]

According to StarWars.com SWCC 2019: 9 Things We Learned from The Mandalorian Panel on StarWars.com (backup link), The Mandalorian is set five years after Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. Since Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of Return of the Jedi to 4 ABY, the events of The Mandalorian, which includes the appearance of the mudhorn's cave, take place around 9 ABY.
