The Royal Treasury of Gilboa is the central bank, responsible for issuing currency (the Laurel). Recently CrossGen, at the order of its CEO William Cross removed all of its gold holdings from the Royal Treasury, causing a temporary financial crisis. To avoid a total financial collapse, King Silas replaced CrossGen's gold with gold  the former King of Carmel, Vesper Abbadon, had hidden before his country fell to Silas in the Unification War.
