I'm curious about both during the game, and after completion. What's the quickest, most efficient way to do this?

You can make a lot of money farming the Cie'rex Cieth at Oerba 400.

With the Fragment-Ability that increases the spawn of rare monsters, you can find him rather easily, and you can kill him in < 10 minuts with the right strategy (which includes clearing his mob as fast as possible).

You get 100k gil per kill, plus up to 3 items (I don't know the english name for them, sorry), which sell for a total of ~50k.

Edit: I think he's called 'Raspatil' in the English version, sorry.

As an extra note. If you equip 2 Durable collectors catalogs you will get around 180.000 gil per battle. And you can beat the monster within 5 minutes with some practice. – Serge Bekenkamp Mar 3 '12 at 12:46

I would like to know the answer too. For me though, I gained a lot of gil from grinding enemies on repeat. I went to Academia -400- in front of a "red block" where you constantly get into random encounters and just mashed the X button while I watched a movie. Maybe not the most fun way to do it, but it worked. Before I beat the game I had 4 level 99 roles and about 200k gil. I'll let you know if I find a better way.

Don't forget to sell all your spare materials also for some extra profit. – David Yell Feb 28 '12 at 8:04
@DavidYell - Yeah, I was really thinking not just pure gil drops but if there were any profitable items. – Shinrai Mar 2 '12 at 19:35

Don Toneberry 18000 Gil per kill, find him at Bresha ruins 100 AF

Try going to Yaschas Massif (110 AF, I think) and fighting the behemoth there. It's the white one, which will give you 2000 xp and 2200 gil per battle.
