Elder Scrolls Online has five types of Currency:
- Gold — The main currency, used to pay for most services and trade with players
- Crowns — A digital currency used to purchase premium items
- Crown Gems — A currency tied to Crown Store loot crates
- Alliance Points — Awarded for participation in the Alliance War
- Tel Var Stones — A token system used in the Imperial City
Only Gold, Alliance Points, and Tel Var Stones will show up in the Currency tab of your inventory. Crowns are account-wide and will only appear in the Crown Store tab (or on the official website when logged in). Crown Gems are treated as items by the UI when obtained, but will similarly only show up in the Crown Store.
