Geocache Description:

A little logic puzzle for you to waste an hour or so solving. There's no tricks, nothing cryptic, no lateral thinking (except in a mathematical way I suppose), just straightforward logic.

The small kingdoms of Gilder and Florin have similar monetary systems that confuse many visitors. Each has only 6 coins in circulation and no paper money. Instead each kingdom packages sealed rolls of all their coins (except the Qui) and each roll is worth the total Qui/Boc value of the coins in it. The number of coins in a roll is different for each coin.

In Gilder, the smallest value coin and basic unit of currency is the Qui. Its other coins, in increasing value, are the Tec, Mag, Jol, Urd and Cort. Each of these is worth some whole number of Quis.

In Florin, the basic unit is the Boc, but there is no one Boc coin. The coins they do have, in increasing value, are the Dex, Niv, Kat, Gan, Ovi and Lurm. Each of these is worth some whole number of Bocs.

One Cort equals one Lurm in value – these are the only two coins worth more than 100 Quis/Bocs, but neither is worth more than 200 Quis/Bocs.

Two Quis equal three Bocs in value, but no coins other than the Cort and Lurm reflect that value ratio.

I've given you one answer to begin with, that should be enough. The rest is up to you.
