Sufficiently large stacks of money are indistinguishable from magic.

A useful power!

I talked my GM into letting my dwarf bard -- who has the background of "I am a career employee of what is essentially the dwarven equivalent of MI6" -- have a small diplomatic pouch with the ability that he can, at any time, pull from it a sum of money equal to the amount needed to pay an invoice that he is presented with.

Presumably the coins come from somewhere in the Central Office, and there is paperwork associated with this, offstage somewhere, that limits its use to things that are plausibly important to his mission -- but it's not like the the (officially non-existent) anti-espionage branch of the Dwarven Ambassadorial Apparatus has a great need to track funding closely. Not officially existing has its benefits.

Money interacts very well with the "consensual reality" of Ascension, I feel.

That reminds me of the "The Gamers: Natural One" show.

The webcomic "Superfogeys" included a hero who, at first glance, looked like a Batman knockoff, but took the name "Moneyman". His preferred tactic with crooks was to buy them off. At least one supervillain switched sides as a result.
