|Also known as?||Po8, POE, 8Pieces|
Pieces of eight are a type of currency which is exclusively for use when trading with Honest Jimmy at the Trouble Brewing activity. To get pieces of eight, players must participate in the Trouble Brewing activity. There is also a chance to receive pieces of eight from pirate implings. After completing a game, each player is awarded a variable amount of pieces depending on how much was accomplished by that player as well as whether their team won or lost. A player that has completed Rocking Out may also catch pirate implings for a meagre 1-5 pieces of eight.

- Following a hidden update on 2 September 2009, the prices at Honest Jimmy's shop were reduced by 90%. Before this a Phasmatys flag sold for 6,000 pieces of eight.
