700 Platinum Pieces
That's a Lot of Cash
700 Platinum Pieces, the equivalent of 70,000 gold, was the price agreed upon for an unspecified amount of Helena at the Helena Exchange. House Nocturne, the original owners of the money, brought seven rolls of 100 platinum pieces to trade with the House of Cards. After the exchange was made and the ambush occured, Laethin was holding the 700 platinum, but was quickly relieved of it by Catherine Selden, who would only return it in exchange for the Helena Recipe. The platinum pieces ultimately made their way back to Laethin after Catherine acquired the recipe.
