What is Wealth Mean in NPC's inventory

Forgive me for not including a concrete example but,

Does anyone know what “Wealth 1” means? (or “Wealth 2”, “Wealth 3”, etc…)
I’m guessing it’s sort of a quick and simple way to denote an NPC’s level of valuables but I was wondering if there was a specific calculation for that. Like Wealth = 10 + 5 CD or something along those lines.

It’s very simple: roll Xd20, where X is the number after ‘Wealth’ - that’s how many caps (or equivalent in valuables or other kinds of money) the NPC has on them.

Thanks Nathan!

They could have put that as “2d20” caps instead of “Wealth 2”.

Any idea what value this extra layer of abstraction gives us?
