Gold or G is the standard currency in Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross. In most RPGs, G (or similar abbreviation) stands for Gold. G is the accepted currency in most time periods, even in Prehistory and the Future, where it is called "shiny stone" or may be questioned as money, respectively. The exception to this is in Prehistory where the Ioka Village Hut merchant accepts Petals, Fangs, Horns and Feathers in exchange for special weapons, armor, and headgear. Gold is accepted by most merchants in exchange for their goods. G is awarded by defeating certain enemies or found in chests. In Chrono Cross, Gold is also represented by G and allows the party to purchase valuable Elements, as well as fighting gear, from vendors across the El Nido archipelago.
