When it comes to domain a level monetary system, I think the best way
of handling it is to do the decimal thing that 3e uses and to include
two "new" units. The "gold mark" (and noted in lower case "gm" so as
to differentiate it from Game Master while keeping with the lower
case notation of coins) should be worth 100gp. The Gold Bar (GB)
should be worth 1,000gp. Lastly the Gold Tonne (GT) is
10,000gp. That way a realm`s treasury can be noted right down to the
"penny" as it were using a single decimal number using whatever
symbol one wants for the denomination:
8.364295GT = 836.4295gm = 83,642.95gp, etc.

Or, to make it more conversion friendly:
1 GT = 10 GB = 100 gm = 1.000 pp = 10.000 gp = 100.000 sp = 1.000.000 cp
1/1.000 GT = 1/100 GB = 1/10 gm = 1 pp = 10 gp = 100 sp = 1.000 cp
The funny things about this is that I always considered coinage as follows:
- copper pieces: pence
- silver pieces: shillings
- gold pieces: pounds
- platinum pieces: crowns
