The command in Lev. 19:35-36 contains the idea of having just weights and measures, money originally being gold and silver measured by weight. Clearly this command, an application of the eighth commandment forbidding theft, also forbids defrauding our neighbor of the value of his monetary unit, especially when it is well within our power to maintain that value.
