The jucal (juh-KAL; dʒʌˈkæl) is a unit of currency. It is the most common currency on Riesel and can be found on various worlds within Riesel's vicinity.


The jucal originated on Strinnethal in 7457 and was the strongest monetary unit on that world until it was replaced in 7780. However, it had been adopted by numerous colonies as a major form of currency at that point and continued to see use, surviving into the 82nd century.
