It provides virtual gold through providing the effect of items.
20 AD = Two longswords = 415 x 2 x 4
20 AP = Tome = 435 x 5
Also, to whoever said Sona isn't a great farmer, you're clearly a Phreak-sheep and don't level your Q. With a decently-leveled Q, she farms very quickly. Throw a Sheen in there and she does great burst damage every few seconds and can pick up kills as well.
And to whoever said that her auras can't all be up at the same time: At max CDR, each of her Auras has a cooldown of 4.2 seconds, with a global cooldown of 1.2 seconds. So you activate the first aura, and by the time you can activate another, it has 3 seconds of cooldown remaining. That means that if you reactivate it at the earliest possible opportunity there will be no downtime on it. You can do this for each of the three auras simultaneously, and have all three up at once.
