A Seon of Gold
Book Of Mormon
From the book of Mormon: Alma 11
[in brackets] are chapters in
Senum of silver = 1 senine
of gold = 1 measure of barley = 1 measure of every kind of grain.
Exchange Rates for GOLD Coins:
[7, 8] Senine = 2 seon = measure-barley =
[8, 9] Seon
= ½ senine = 1/2 shum
 Limnah = 'all'
 Antion= 3 shiblon
Exchange Rates for SILVER Coins:
Amnor = 2 senums
Ezrom = 4 senums
 Onti = 'all'
 Senum = senine = measure-barley =
 Seon = 2 senine
Shum = 2 seons
Shiblum = 2 leahs = 1/2

to get 1/3 shiblon as change for 1 shiblon and vice versa.

archeological evidence (external link:
Plates of Laman) verified the existence of other
Lamanite (early Mormon) coinage:
yoni of gold
= 1 day's wages
Ontis of silver = 200 Olys of iron
Senine of gold and Silver = 202 Senines of Silver
Heh-ku-kau-beam of Iron = a measure of Shiblons
Archeologists have not yet been able to find the iron
and steel mills in the pre-Colombian Americas. Iron and steel are
mentioned in many places in the Book of Mormon. Many of theses smelters have
been found in all parts of the world, except in the Americas. Copper, silver
and zinc mines and smelters are known to have been present in pre-Colombian
America. Brass is a mixture of copper an
Perhaps Joseph Smith, in translating
the Golden Plates took a lesson from another prophet, Mohammed.
Mohammed said in (Sura 4:11-12 and 4:176 Qur'anic inheritance law):
When a man dies, and is leaving behind three daughters, his two parents
and his wife, they will receive the respective shares of 2/3 for the 3
daughters together, 1/3 for the parents together [both according to
verse 4:11] and 1/8 for the wife [4:12] which adds up to more than the
available estate. A second example: A man leaves only his mother, his
wife and two sisters, then they receive 1/3 [mother, 4:11], 1/4 [wife,
4:12] and 2/3 [the two sisters, 4:176], which again adds up to 15/12 of
the available property. More

about the coins: "...leaving the Mormons to worry about how to make
change for a "Limnah," we note simply that although the ancient
Americans had gold and silver in abundance, they never made coins or
evolved a money economy. They used jade beads, obsidian blades, and
even cacao beans as media of exchange. Never did they mint coins or
create a standardized system of metal money." -- Frank R. Zindler
