The Legion Denarius, mangled is a miscellaneous item in Fallout: New Vegas.

BackgroundEdit

This section is transcluded from Legion currency. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

Caesar's Legion uses two old forms of currency which were also used in Roman times. They are minted by the Legion in the form of silver and gold coins, each coin bearing the profile of Caesar. Despite Caesar's poor relations with the other factions in New Vegas, Legion currency is still accepted as payment in the Mojave Wasteland, owing to the high level of trade with the Legion and the safety of its territory for caravans. The exchange rate is 4 bottle caps to 1 Denarius, and 100 bottle caps to 1 Aureus.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Denarius (silver), which bears an image of a younger Caesar on the obverse and Caesar, Joshua Graham and Calhoun on the reverse. The inscriptions are in Latin, "Caesar Dictator" meaning "Dictator Caesar" or "Absolute Ruler Caesar" on the front and "Magnum Chasma" meaning "Great Abyss" or "Great Fissure" on the back, referring to the Grand Canyon. The symbolism is simple - the denarius commemorates young Caesar's journey to the Canyon and his first victories as a dictator of the tribes.

VariantsEdit

LocationEdit

These can be found on the bodies of enemies killed using crafted 12 gauge coin shot ammunition.

NotesEdit

Despite the description of being mangled, it appears identical to the normal Legion Denarius, but is worth only half the value: 2 caps instead of 4.

Behind the scenesEdit
