Converted into Faerun coinage:
(which is what he generally asks the Bar to convert it into)

GP is a Faerun gold coin, which essentially is close to half an ounce of gold.
A GP is worth 10 SP or silver coins and a SP is worth 10 CP, which is copper coins.

Converted into Thedas Coinage:
A Thedas Gold Coin is a Sovereign. It is 1 ounce of pure gold, and thus twice as heavy as a thinner, but wider-radius'd Faerun coin. It is worth 100 silver pieces, and a silver piece on Thedas is thus worth 100 copper pieces.

Diamond : Flawed (75 silvers), Flawless (8 sovereigns)
Ruby : Flawed (2 sovereigns and 40 silvers),Flawless (6 sovereigns)
Emerald: Flawless (4 sovereigns), Flawed (2 sovereigns)
Sapphire : (1 sovereign and 20 silvers)
Topaz : (1 sovereign)
Amethyst : (20 silvers)
Malachite : (60 silvers)
Fluorspar : (50 silvers)
Garnet : (60 silvers)
Quartz : (8 silvers)
Greenstone : (4 silvers)

Converted into Earth Currencies:

In general, Zak prefers to convert his gemstones into coinage from Faerun, and then simply convert that into Dollars.

A 1 ounce gold coin would be worth $1,100 based on gold weight alone; thus every two Faerun coins can be converted into $1,100.

Kelewan Currency:

Tentatively, Zak's coins can be worth close to a million centis.
I say tentatively, because the Tsurani view on metal is simple.

All metal is precious.

A centi is a seashell which is used in Kelewan as coinage equivalent to the copper pieces of Faerun in their system of currency.

In Kelewan, among Tsurani, Gold, silver, copper and all other coins or forms of metal are worth fortunes. An iron dagger, not very large either... is a nobleman's ransom; or a fortune should he find one.

Even scrap metal is worth quite a lot in terms of the Kelewan currency, which is essentially based on seashells, with crystals and gems as larger units of currency.
Metal is right on the top of the totem pole, with scraps, then brass, iron, steel or other non-precious metals at the bottom, and copper as a 'mid-rank', silver as 'high' and gold as 'the color belonging to the Emperor' and used to be tradeable for estates or chances to claim noble rewards.. in terms of land. Or noble daughters.
