Code:

You pay 3197 silver coins.
You get 20 platinum and 2 copper coins back.

You read:

Our bank provides you with a cheap way to relieve you of the burden of
heavy coins. For each transaction we ask only a 5% fee.


Middle Earth, Bree.

The math (almost) checks out.
3197 silver * .95 * .95 = 2885 silver / 144 = 20.0347 plats = 20 plats and 60 copper

You got cheated about 60 copper (depending on your rounding). Storm the bank with your impaling pitchfork raised!
