A Nerkmid is a star-shaped coin that is used as currency for the Alien Aisha Vending Machine. Like the vending machine itself, Nerkmids are an invention of the Alien Aishas, and it is the Alien Aishas that distribute the Nerkmids throughout Neopia.
On the Neopets website, Nerkmids take the form of tradable items. They are obtained by receiving them from Random Events or by purchasing them from other users using the Auction House, Trading Post, or user shops. The Vending Machine itself can also give out Nerkmids, although it requires a Nerkmid to be used.
There are currently 20 different kinds of Nerkmids:
- As of December 2011, 15 items have been created based upon the Nerkmid.
