Silver pieces are the currency in Salem. NPC vendors in Boston sell goods and services in silver pieces, and will also pay you in silver for certain items they are willing to buy. Silver is also widely exchanged between players through offers of buying and selling which you will often find when loitering in Boston's main square.
Silver pieces are stack-able in your inventory reaching a maximum size of 100 per inventory slot. This can quickly become a burden trying to store larger amounts of silver so players may purchase a Coin Purse from NPC vendors in Boston for a small price of 5 silver pieces. A coin purse takes a single inventory slot and can store up to 500 silver pieces inside. You may even equip the pouch to your person which not only frees up all your inventory but also allows you to fast travel while carrying silver in your pouch when it is equipped.
Earning Silver in Salem
A new pilgrim to Salem may find it difficult to earn any silver to pay for the guide service which gives them a homestead on a random location or to purchase the nails to build the homestead themselves.
One good way to earn your first silver is to learn Indian Tracking and forage the area around Boston for Indian Arrowhead and Indian Feathers.
Then you can craft the Savage Charm which the NPC buys for 35 silver pieces. Keep in mind the arrowheads spawn more frequently and are not useful by themselves.
Another good way to earn some coin in the beginning is to forage around Boston for some rare items other players usually are willing to buy.
Inspirational items such as Tumbleweed, Beautiful Seashell, Aged Driftwood, New World Gourd can be found on the ground and are usually desirable.
Also there are some items which are easy to craft such as Hay which is a staple product for farming.
Players farming fields always could use more of it and would rather pay someone else to collect all the grass then to do it themselves.
