The Roman Republic quantifies participation in our community through the awarding denarii.
In some ways denarii is like a currency. In important ways, it is very different from currency. Ultimately, denarii does not have monetary value, it cannot be exchanged for American Dollars etc. In this respect, it is better to think of denarii as a measure of honour accumulated by helping build the modern Roman Republic. Like currency, denarii can also be traded with those citizens who volunteer to assist you with your interests and projects.
During periods of antiquity, one denarius was made up of ten asses (also called assarii). Therefore a single as (assarius) has a value of 0.1 denarius. The Roman Republic has the ability to process 0.01 denarius or 0.1 as. Like in antiquity, a denarius is represented by the symbol 𐆖. An as is represented by the symbol 𐆚.
Denarius is automatically awarded for doing many things. For example:

What are denarii used for?
Denarii are used for three primary purposes.
I. Determining the weight of one’s vote in the Comitia Centuriata
II. Being used to reward and motivate members towards projects and initiatives both public and private. (eg. rewarding a citizen for providing advice, resources, teaching, developing a web site, answering question, etc.)
III. May be used to offer discounts in a future Roman Republic store. (not yet implemented)
