Doubloons are a form of currency on SBC. Main page here.
They were first introduced on June 20th, 2010 on forumotion, but did not serve a key purpose at the time. Later in December 2010, during V5 Dolphin, Glove Universe (Glove World at the time) was opened where users could finally spend their doubloons, thus finally giving them a purpose. They are displayed under how many posts you have and in your profile. You can use Doubloons to buy things in Glove Universe, and you can get them from posting or winning certain contests, ect.
They went missing for a while on phpBB3 due to a site crash, but returned for Orca. They are now in full integration with ibEconomy.
