A History of Money
9000 BC: Cattle and Crops The earliest appearance of money came in the form of cattle and crops. In a society where food and animals were the only means of survival it was natural that they were used as a means of exchange. One commodity was traded for another, so there was no need for money as we know it today. 1200 BC: Cowrie Shells These were the shells of clams and were first used as money in China. Cowrie shells lay in the shallow waters of the Pacific and Indian Ocean. This form of currency was used for hundreds of years even as recently as the 17th century. Native Americans used a string of beads called wampum made from clam shells to trade their goods. 1000 BC - 700BC: Non-precious and precious metals Crude coins made from non- precious metals had no real value. They began circulating in China as early as 1000 BC. Unlike gold or silver, they were worthless, so it was difficult to use them as payment for expensive goods. Several centuries later, coins made from precious metals such as gold and silver emerged from Lydia and Turkey in 700 BC. It was then that the figures of gods and emperors were stamped on the coins. 1255 AD . Today Because China was running out of copper, the Chinese emperor had to issue paper notes. In 1455, two centuries later, paper notes first circulated in Europe and America. Now, we use paper bills, coins, digital money and credit cards. There will come a day when we will not use money at all and all our transactions will be made electronically or online. Who knows what the future for money holds
