Zeni (ゼニー, Zenī; English TV "Zenie"; Symbol: Ƶ) is one of the currencies of Earth, and the main currency featured in the Dragon Ball series. Unlike the yen , which seems to be only used around the Eastern Capital of Earth, Zeni appears to be the standard, worldwide currency that is accepted nearly everywhere. Zeni are primarily given out as the prize money from the Tenka-Ichi Budōkai. Prior to the start of the series, the Zeni was worth 1.5 less than the yen. By the time the series began, however, the yen had decreased in value, making the two currencies roughly equivalent.
