Original Dune
This article or section refers to elements from Original Dune.

The Solari was the official monetary currency unit of the Imperium. Its purchasing power was set at quatricentennial negotiations between the Guild, the Landsraad, and the Emperor.

Recorded Prices in Solaris[]

  • On the Imperial market, Spice Melange went as high as 620,000 solaris per decagram.

Behind the Scenes[]

Most references to solaris were made in the original Dune novel. They weren't mentioned at all again until Heretics of Dune, where they are mentioned in passing as still in active use despite taking place five thousand years after the events of the first book. The Spacing Guild is still active in Heretics, however (albeit in diminished form), so apparently they still use the same name for their currency.
