You could do it I guess, but it sounds kind of complicated for a detail.
You'll have to rescript a bunch of monetary functions like (or make an equivalent for your currency system):
GetGold Gets the amount of gold that a creature possesses.
GetGoldPieceValue Determines the value of an item in gold pieces.
GetReactionAdjustment Gets the adjusted Reaction for the purposes of store pricing.
GetStoreGold Returns the amount of gold a store currently has
GetStoreIdentifyCost Determines how much a store charges to identify items
GetStoreMaxBuyPrice Gets the maximum amount a store will pay for any item
GiveGoldToAll Gives an amount of gold to each PC in a PC's party
GiveGoldToAllEqually Divides a given amount of gold equally among PCs in a PC's party
GiveGoldToCreature Creates the specified amount of gold on the creature.
HasGold Determines if a player has more than a certain amount of gold on them.
RewardGP Gives gold as a reward to a player and possible their party members.
RewardPartyGP Give gold to PC or PC's entire party
SetStoreGold Sets the amount of gold a store has
SetStoreMaxBuyPrice Sets the maximum amount a store will pay for any item
TakeGold Removes a given amount of gold from the targets inventory, and optionally removes it from the game.
TakeGoldFromCreature Takes a specified amount of gold away from a creature.
NWN was really based to work with gold pieces only.
If this is for RP purpose here is what I suggest. Use the NWN system, but consider that gold pieces are copper pieces. Whenever a merchant says it will cost you a silver piece, take 10(nwn)gp, whenever he asks for a gold piece, take 100(nwn)gp. Don't forget to add price multipliers in your shops (for buying and selling) to adjust it to the price you want.
Also, check the vault for prebuilt worlds that use copper, silver and gold. I played a PW a while back (I forget the name now) that used it. I think he said it was standard in one of the base module systems.
