A wernick was a unit of money on Melmac that was equal to ten dollars.
Madame Pokipsi charged twenty wernicks to regrow hair. She had a half price special, and Gordon paid with a ten wernick bill. Augie wanted four wernicks to keep quiet when Gordon made her hair fall out. Gordon had hoped she would accept a single wernick coin. (ATAS: "Hair Today, Bald Tomorrow")
