Yes, were I building a game with a player-managed currency system,
that's what I would do.  Each town's government would have the
ability to create a single currency and set up vendors that will
buy/sell items and services for currency.  Players could also create
vendors using the town's currency, but obviously couldn't create
currency directly.
