Watching a lot of DS9 lately and am curious about latinum (gold pressed) raitos. I’ve heard bar, strip and slip.

Are there more?

How do they translate (ie: how many slips = 1 strip).?

  • When is strip mentioned? – user126198 Apr 19 '20 at 14:44

Latinum comes in 4 denominations slips, strips, bars, and bricks (from smallest to largest).

From the Memory-Alpha entry on Latinum:

  • Slips - One hundred slips of gold-pressed latinum are equal to one strip.
  • Strips - Twenty strips are equal to one bar of latinum.
  • Bars - The exchange rate from bars to bricks is unknown.
  • Bricks

One bar of gold-pressed latinum is equal to twenty strips which is equal to 2,000 slips of latinum.

  • @boxed-dinners how much latinum was the bet for? ;) – user11521 Dec 13 '16 at 5:37
