There are two forms of currency used: Federation “credits” and gold-pressed latinum.

Federation Credits

The Federation Credit was the monetary unit of the United Federation of Planets. Credits were used extensively throughout the Alpha Quadrant as the Federation’s power and prestige rose in the 23rd Century. The credit became the Federation’s standard currency unit in 2227.

The USS Enterprise (NCC 1701) cost fifty billion credits to make.

Gold-pressed Latinum

Latinum was a rare substance which was prized by many civilizations in the Alpha Quadrant. For use as currency, liquid latinum was usually suspended within gold or gold dust which produced gold-pressed latinum. The gold casing carried a maker’s mark; the lack of such a mark normally indicated that the bar was stolen, or was counterfeit.
