A rhinu was the currency of the Agatean Empire. They are large golden coins, and are worth a relatively low amount in the Agatean Empire, as gold is abundant on the counterweight continent. This disparity of value causes the tourist Twoflower to greatly overpay others while on his trip. This would cause bewilderment as often as it would provoke rather violent reactions; ironically, to some citizens of Ankh-Morpork the fine gold rhinu looked nothing like the watered-down low-karat gold they were used to seeing, and they mistook Twoflower's money for worthless counterfeits.
