The Haltmann (Haltmoney in Japanese) is a unit of the currency used by the Haltmann Works Company in Kirby: Planet Robobot. It is presumably manufactured by President Haltmann since the note features his face (as well as Susie's) and symbol on it.
Haltmanns are printed notes. The front of a bill is adorned with a Code Cube design on the left side, the face of a high-ranking Haltmann Works Company employee in the center, and the Haltmann Works logo on the right. The back of a bill depicts the Haltmann Works logo as well.
Only two denominations of bill are shown: the 50,000 and the 100,000. The 50,000-Haltmann bill is purplish in color and has an image of Susie on it. The 100,000-Haltmann bill is greenish and has an image of President Haltmann on it.
Kirby never directly interacts with Haltmanns, though they are used by President Haltmann as an attack. His Executive Suit spews bills into the air, some of which land on the Nintendo 3DS screen, blocking part of the player's view. In Story Mode, the boss uses 100,000-Haltmann bills. In the Meta Knightmare Returns and The True Arena sub-games, President Haltmann 2.0 uses 50,000-Haltmann bills; these land on the screen in such a way that more of the player's view is blocked. When President Haltmann's Executive Suit is destroyed, singed bills drift downward through the air.
Text descriptions of certain bosses and mid-bosses mention the costs of their manufacture or the manufacture of their technology. Clanky Woods is said to cost twice as much Clanky Woods 2.0. The D3 2.0 cannon costs four times the price of Mecha Knight, but both are significantly less costly than President Haltmann's Executive Suit. Gigavolt and Gigavolt II are the only creations that have their exact costs listed, at 4,300 million and 8,600 million, respectively.
|“||The second edition of the Gigavolt was developed for the express purpose of eradicating all obstacles. Priced at 8,600 million Haltmanns, it's twice the cost of a first-generation Gigavolt.”|

|“||Clanky Woods has been redesigned and upgraded. Better fuel efficiency and fewer emissions demonstrate the company's new environmentally friendly initiative. It costs only half of the previous model!”|

|“||This tridimensional cannon is extremely expensive, costing a whooping four times more than Mecha Knight. However, it's still much cheaper than Haltmann's Executive Suit, which is made of pure gold.”|
