Deet came from behind while I was watching Lia cleaning up.
[Hey Toru, please take me to Japan while Lia is still cleaning up] (Deet)
[Hey Toru, please take me to Japan while Lia is still cleaning up] (Deet)
[It's impossible now] (Toru)
[Why is it?] (Deet)
[We can't leave Lia alone here, right?] (Toru)
I thought she wouldn't be convinced with just that excuse, but it seems she listening to me this time. But with *hmph!!*- she turned away afterwards.
However, as the number of people that live here increased, the necessary to go to Japan to do some shopping did too.
I don't have enough money so I rented cheap property even though it seemed a little dubious, but the needs of money keep coming one after another.
I got some idea to solve this problem but I need to take Deet's mood into consideration.
[Deet, did you see the room next to the washroom where we brushed our teeth together?] (Toru)
[Hmph, I don't know.....] (Deet)
[There is a bath there] (Toru)
[You may enter anytime] (Toru)
It seems her mood has recovered a little. Just one more push!!
[Umm..... I will cooperate to increase your growth limits one more level] (Toru)
[Wh-Wh-What is this so suddenly? I still have two levels to spare so it's fine!!] (Deet)
She refused up front, even though she insisted before. But her mood seems to have returned because her face formed a smile.
[Deet, I want to ask a little favor] (Toru)
[What is this? Toru] (Deet)
[Will you buy the bloomers and the school swimsuit?] (Deet)
[Eh? I was thinking to ask you that myself! But I only have the money from this world, you know? Can you use it?](Deet)
[I have thought of something about that, please come here!] (Toru)
I bring Deet in front of my computer.
[Let me see the money you have] (Toru)
Deet took out the bag from a black leather pochette. Unlike Lia who had only five coins, this bag contains considerable amount of silver and gold coins.
[These are Gadius gold coins, aren’t they?] (Toru)
[That's right] (Deet)
[It means these gold coins are being used as currency, right?] (Toru)
[Because it made from gold. It's not pure gold though, but that's right~] (Deet)
I often see the sign that says "purchase gold" in downtown. It should be also listed as company which is dealing with secondhand branded-name products and tickets. I try searching with that keyword.
(TL : チケット = tickets I don’t know what kind of ticket is this but it said so)
[Oh, there it is!! It seems to be taken in units of grams, surely they should buy gold coins as well] (Toru)
[Really? You can take is as much as you want. To be honest, I don’t think it’s enough to buy school swimsuit and bloomers artifacts. This kind of artifacts can't be found even at dark auction] (Deet)
[Bloomer at dark auction..... no, that's a strange combination..... Of course you won't find those there because they’re being sold cheaply at Don Quijote cosplay corner. I will take 3 gold coins for each kind] (Toru)
I asked Deet about the value of gold coins while at it.
First of all, the biggest gold coin with the highest value is Burns Memorial gold coin, often called as white gold coin. It seems that rare metals are mixed in it.
In the second place is the Imperial gold coin. It seems to be a gold coin that comes from a bigshot country called Iglos Empire.
Gadius gold coin is the smaller gold coin among the two. When people mention gold coins, it seems they referring to these ones.
These small gold coins are issued by a commerce country called Gadius. There is no pattern on these gold coins, but it’s guaranteed to always have a certain degree of purity.
In other words, white gold coin → imperial gold coin → gold coin and then under them are silver coin → copper coin, there seems to be tenfold difference between each.
[I don't know if I can sell these gold coins but if it really works out, I might be able to live by simply selling Japanese goods to the people of other world without working part-time] (Toru)
[How about living in our world?] (Deet)
[I can't pay the rent of this apartment that way] (Toru)
[Ah, that's right!! Either about this resting place to capture the dungeon, either about how you get unusual items, or either about the traps and computer, it's all possible because of this place] (Deet)
[Moreover, the lifestyle in Japan is pretty good, it's hard to throw it away] (Toru)
[Granola fruit is certainly delicious, tatami mat is good, and computer also seems to be fun as well] (Deet)
[Those all are just something trivials. For the time being, why don't you try Japanese bathroom? You should enter it with Lia] (Toru)
[With Lia?] (Deet)
[You need her to teach you how to use it. I will go do shopping in the meantime] (Toru)
I laugh and call out Lia.
[Yes, I’m coming. What is it?] (Lia)
[Will you take a bath with Deet?] (Toru)
Deet is protesting.
[Just a minute!! I’m fine going alone] (Deet)
[Understood!! I will teach Deet-san how to use the bath. Come on, take off your clothes!!] (Lia)
[Please stop it!! I can do it by myself!!] (Deet)
[Because it will be serious if you make a mistake. I went *kyaa~!!* last time because I made a mistake and had Toru-sama help me] (Lia)
I thought about watching them a little longer but I'm more interested in conversion about the gold coins right now.
I decide to leave through the window after taking a glance at the figures of the two behind me one more time.
"Purchase gold in high price! The assessment is based on weight"
I feel somewhat tense upon entering the store. The purchase amount was written in more details over there.
I see..... the price per weight changed depending on the content (purity). Such things were written on the net as well.
I call out the onee-san at the counter.
[Excuse me. I'd like to ask for assessment of the gold that I want to sell] (Toru)
[Certainly, Please write your address and your name on this document. Do you bring ID card?]
[I have driver license] (Toru)
I was overstraining myself to get the driver license. But of course I don't have a car.
[Yes, that’s fine. How about the goods?]
[Oh? There are quite a lot of gold coins that I have never seen before.....]
[No, I’m still not sure if this is gold. I found it inside my late grandmother’s warehouse] (Toru)
The world on the dungeon's side culture seems only devoted to the design of gold coin because there are no letters or numbers carved on it.
Let's claim it as sculptured medal because it may couldn’t be sold if It seemed to be used as currency somewhere or contained historical value.
The onee-san took out a thick gold coin catalog on the spot and checked it.
Actually, I looked it up on the net, it seems that a lot foreigners come to Japan to sell gold since there is difference between domestic and foreign gold prices.
Well, there are also people who were caught at the airport because they brought gold from overseas to Japan without paying the taxes. But of course selling the gold itself is legal.
[It certainly doesn't fall under the currency of any country. Because there is no such value, I will buy it based on content and weight. Please wait a moment!!]
I did it~!! I did it~!! It might be good with the gold of whatever origin. The shop side will not take responsibility either.
Thirty minutes after waiting.
[This small medal is ¥ 9,400]
One Gadius gold coin with no design is worth almost ¥10,000?
Ca-Calm down, it's still too early to get excited.
[This medal with human design included.....]
The empire gold coin huh. That is a portrait of the first emperor.
[I will buy it for ¥97,000]
Al-Al-Almost one hundred thousand yen?
[For real?] (Toru)
[Yes. In addition, the biggest medal is likely gold-plated platinum]
Platinum is higher than gold, isn't it? Besides it's bigger among the two.
[I can't buy it right away because it needs further investigation]
Are you really serious? In the world of dungeon's side, I was told that the value will go up by ten folds.
Imperial gold coin also has 10 times the price of Gadius gold coin. Because one Imperial gold coin is ¥97,000, the price of white gold coin should be around ¥ 1,000,000.
[Well then, I will pay for the small and medium sized gold coins. I will give you the deposit certificate for the biggest gold coin and you can take its payment on a later date, how about that?]
[No, excuse me. Can I just sell only the smallest one? I will bring it here again next time] (Toru)
I hurried out of the store with ¥9,400 in my hands.
[I got ¥9,400 for the time being~] (Toru)
The reason I exchanged for money only Gadius gold coin because this one was really just like ordinary medal with almost no pattern whatsoever.
The gold coins with the emperor's face etc. will looks like containing some kind of historical value when you think about it.
If I brought it in large amounts, I would be suspected as a tomb raider in the worst case.
Because of that the safe choice is to exchange only Gadius coin, who looks like simply gold medal in Japan.
I can get about ¥10,000 for each one huh?
I throw the white gold coin into the air and catch it while laughing.
[Fufufu~ This white gold coin, if I bring it out outside the dungeon, I can exchange it for 100 Gadius gold coins in the city] (Toru)
