Gold rewarded for completing quests is based on both the level of a character and the type of quest (important/longer quests give out higher gold):
[[Online:ESO Plus|ESO Plus]] members should multiply all values by ×1.1

==Notes==
[[File:ON-item-Coins (Septims).jpg|thumb|right|Physical model of Septim coins]]
* According to a [[:File:ON-prerelease-2011 Build.jpg|screenshot from 2011]], early builds of ESO also used silver and copper currency.
* As a physical object, gold can be found '''Coins''' in many locations. Coins may be marked as unowned or stolen (stolen coins incur a bounty if taken when a witness is present) and often give a low amount of gold. They show the symbol of a chest on one side and a crown with four {{Lore Link|Daedric Alphabet|Daedric letters}} on the other side. These coins are called "Drakes".
** Mistakenly, some coins still use the older model showing the symbol of the Empire on one side and the face of {{Lore Link|Tiber Septim}} on the other. These coins, called "Septims", are a transcription error as Tiber Septim did not exist as of the time period of ESO and the textures were likely lifted directly from the [[Skyrim:Gold|TES V: Skyrim coin]] models.
