They should use either the Ottoman asper (akçe in Turkish) or Arab dinar.

Venetian ducats would also be reasonable, as that was the mostly universal coin of the time period.

Or we could just use Florins again...

Yes, I know it's inaccurate, but still... AC2 and ACB's florins were only identifiable by name.

I doubt Ubisoft will use Florins, although as a major trade city one could argue that a number of currencies could be used in Constantinople.

On second thought I take back what I said... I honestly just didn't think that through. I guess I forgot how historically accurate Ubisoft is...

The US dollar seems to be the obvious choice.

That doesn't ruin the game, but nobody should be expecting a nuance like the currency to conform to what is historically probable.
