The Tagogese Pound is the currency of the Democratic Republic of Tagog. It is issued by the Central Bank of the Democratic Republic of Tagog. The notes used to be issued by Bergsson of Inselöarna, but in November 2013 they sadifyingly stopped printing the notes.

The Tagogese pound is incredibly stable and its blessing by the president and Tagpol ensures endless prosperity for the Tagogese people. Each pound coin weighs 1 pound, that is 454 grams, because the Tagogese government do not wish to tolerate fatal ambiguities.
