There is an old thread that tried to get to the value of a Galactic/Imperial credit in US dollars. They covered some interesting territory but ultimately failed to come up with a ratio.
I came looking for this figure and found this image of what looks like a gold coin.
If there is a weight for this coin and using the current value of gold, then I do believe
that an accurate value can be calculated. The image is of an actual coin produced by LFL,
therefore someone should be able to get a weight for the coin to start the calculation.
I have also read a calculations that put the value of 1 credit at 10.10 dollars,
but I do not know how this was calculated.

All of this begs the question though: is this gold? And if it were, how plentiful is gold in the Galaxy Far Far Away? The value of precious metals comes, at least in part, from its rarity. If gold is plentiful in Star Wars, then its value would be significantly lower. The reverse would likely also be true. So if that coin is canonically gold, we still can't use it as a fair basis for comparison. All we would know is what one gold coin is worth in US dollars, should it ever appear in an Earth market.
