Coins of the Marquetten dukesmark have not yet been minted, however there have been several planned designs for denominations of coins. In the future, coins will exist in denominations of ½П (i.e. one half para ℳ​1480), 1П, 2П, 3П, 5П, 6П, 1/~, 2/~, 5/~, 6/~ and 10/~. There are also planned bullion (gold, silver, platinum, and electrum) and commemorative coins. All of these will produced by the Mint of Duchessgrad.

Current coinage

The 2023 revaluation of the dukesmark resulted in the denominations of coins changing, resulting in the current third series of coinage.

March Mintage poll

the March Mintage poll was a public poll conducted by the Marquetten government on the satisfaction with the current range of coinage. the poll asked for the takers' satisfaction with current coinage and asked for opinions on four new denominations of coins in order ℳ1, ℳ2, ℳ1/1/~ (a Guinea) and 1 polushka. A total of nine citizens responded however only eight were counted as one participant responded to every question with "?". The poll concluded on 20 March 2023 with 71.5% of participants being generally satisfied with the extant coinage, however most respondents were favorable to new coins being minted. A sizeable number of respondents voiced confusion over the Guinea, it was still generally popular, however.

Polushka coins

Although the term Polushka is defined as ​1960 of a dukesmark or ¼П, no coin smaller than 0.5П has ever been officially planned in the Marquette However, before the redenomination the ¼ (or 0.0025) were planned to be minted in the second series this coins is often seen as a predecessor to the polushka, actually equaling 0.6 polushkas, or just over one half.
