Types of Currencies

Icon Name Description
Gold.png Gold Gold is the main currency in the Sea of Thieves, used to acquire a vast majority of purchasable items, such as cosmetic items from shops, voyages, and Promotions from Trading Companies. The main method of earning Gold in Sea of Thieves is to sell treasure to Trading Companies in Adventure Mode and through Seasonal rewards. Gold was previously earned by competing in matches of The Arena.

Doubloons can be spent at the Black Market, hosted by the Bilge Rats representative in every Tavern, or used to purchase certain items at any Outpost shop.

The currency is stored in the player's Quest Radial and is only carried by the player during an active Tall Tale.
