    As a book lover, I want to create my own bookplate, and of course any design is greatly embellished by a Latin motto.

    I’m thinking, “Books are the currency of knowledge.” How could I get this translated?

    LCF meant to write "sunt", not "sun". By the way nummi means coins, I am not sure if there's a word for currency at all.
