This article is about an older version of DF.

Billon is an alloy of equal parts silver and copper. Historically, this was used to mint coins, but without modding the game's object files, billon coins will have no function in the dwarven economy.

Two billon bars can be made at a smelter from 1 chunk of silver ore and 1 of copper ore, or 1 silver bar and 1 copper bar. Two units of tetrahedrite count as 1 copper and 1 silver ore, and will yield two bars of billon. This last recipe will only be used when no other silver ores like silver or galena are available to the smelter, otherwise silver nuggets or galena ore will be preferred, the tetrahedrite then acting as copper.

Billon can be used to make furniture and 'other objects' at a Metalsmith's forge.
