Gil English Gil coins in Final Fantasy X. Gil (??, Giru?), also translated as GP, Gold, and G, is the currency in all of the Final Fantasy games. It is acquired throughout each game and used for making various purchases and occasionally for some abilities, such as Gil Toss. Profile Appearance Gil is almost never seen in-game. Usually, the only time gil is seen is when using the Gil Toss command. The currency is predominantly circulated in coins of varying value. The only mention of paper gil in the series is in Final Fantasy Tactics 1.29: Grimoire of the Rift, where Luso delivers a letter containing several gil notes. In Final Fantasy X, gil coins come in several colors (and presumably metals), and each bears an image on one side and the value of the coin on the other. In Final Fantasy VI and Final Fantasy VII, gil appears as silver coins with a hole through the middle, while in Final Fantasy V gil coins are gold with a hole. In Final Fantasy XII, Penelo can briefly be seen holding a pair of coins presumed to be gil, one silver and one gold, with unclear detailed markings on them. This suggests that gil is loosely based on the Japanese yen (?) or ancient Chinese coins, with the Final Fantasy X gil coins appearing very similar to yen coins. The yen, along with other Chinese and Japanese currencies, such as the mon, have holes in some of the coins, a trait dating back to feudal times when coins were carried on string. Usage Gil is a metric currency, measured in base ten. Beyond this, the exact value of gil varies between games. For example, in Final Fantasy IV Potion costs 30 gil, while they cost 50 gil in Final Fantasy VI and 100 gil in Final Fantasy VII. Some items, such as Elixirs, have low sale prices, usually only 1 gil, meant to discourage the player from selling such rare items. The value of items between individual shops and towns is universal for most games, and items do not change in pricing depending on where the player shops. There are a handful of exceptions to this, allowing the player to earn discounts at some stores, but this is rare. Gil has many other uses, such as the Gil Toss ability, which allows the player to damage enemies by throwing money at them. Gil Toss often does great damage, but at the obvious drawback of costing a great deal of gil. In Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2, gil can be used to bribe monsters to leave the battle as well as entice Yojimbo into attacking enemies. In Final Fantasy XII, the Turtleshell Choker accessory allows the equipped party member to cast spells using gil instead of MP. In Final Fantasy VII, gil and GP are treated as separate currencies. At the Gold Saucer amusement park, GP is used to pay for many attractions, while others charge gil. GP is also used to buy items from the park. GP cannot usually be exchanged with gil, but a man randomly appears outside the park who sells the player GP for 100 gil apiece. Otherwise, GP can only be acquired by winning the Saucer’s minigames. Acquiring See also: Gil farming Gil can in most games be found in treasure chests and often as awards for subquests. Most Final Fantasy games allow gil to be won from enemies, but there are exceptions. In Final Fantasy VIII, the player earns a regular salary based on their SeeD ranking. In Final Fantasy XII, most monsters do not drop gil but instead drop loot, which can be sold for both gil and access to exclusive Bazaar items. In Final Fantasy XIII players must find item spheres containing gil, or sell premium items. In some games, gil can be stolen from monsters. Some games offer the player the chance to win more gil from battles by using certain accessories or abilities, and some penalize the player an amount of gil for fleeing from battle. In all of the above instances, items can be sold for gil as well. In games where monsters leave gil stronger monsters usually leave more
