This spell functions like Lesser Transmute Item to Gold except the items are turned into either the equivalent value of gold or platinum pieces (chosen at time of casting).
This spell enables a Snake Oil Salesperson to change all items within a certain area into their corresponding gold value. Weapons, armor, tools, and all magic items are affected. Any such items carried by creatures are affected as well. A magic object is given a Fort saving throw – the bonus is equal to 2 + one-half the item’s caster level, or the holding creature’s saving throw, whichever is higher. Artifacts cannot be transmuted.
If the spell succeeds, the item instantly turns into the equivalent value of gold or platinum pieces (chosen at time of casting). If the caster chooses platinum as the unit of currency to transmute to, and the item is not worth 1 whole platinum peice, it transmutes to the item’s value in gold. If the item is not worth 1 whole gold piece, it transmutes to the item’s value in silver or copper.
An item thus transmuted cannot be restored to its original state with mortal magic. A magic item changed to platinum pieces is forevermore platinum pieces.
