    You make pieces of 1, 2 and 4 units of gold.
    The first day you pay with the 1 unit piece.
    The next day you change the 1 unit piece for the 2 unit piece.
    The third day you give the 1 unit piece again.
    Day 4 you change both pieces for the 4 unit piece.
    Next day you give him the 1 unit piece.
    Day 6 you change the 1 unit piece for the 2 unit piece.
    And on the last day you give him the 1 unit piece again.
