The moon (or a moon) refers to crescent shaped coins minted by the city of Silverymoon.
Around the late 1480s and the early 1490s DR the original shining blue crescent-shaped electrum coin was in circulation again, valued at 2 unicorns (platinum pieces) in Silverymoon, and 1 platinum piece elsewhere. At the same time, along with this coin, there was also the eclipsed moon, which consisted of a moon stamped with a silver wedge to complete its round form. It was worth 5 unicorns in Silverymoon, or 2 unicorns elsewhere.

The Silver Marches does not mention the older electrum moon, but implies that the city of Silverymoon, only minted the gold coin at the time.
