Today, large sums of money are handled electronically, and many people have lost touch with the physical qualities of currency. However, plastic debit and credit cards will never have the appeal, allure, or value of old coinage.
In this video, you will learn the history of money, which dates back thousands of years. While coins were minted approximately 2,500 years ago, other objects like shells were used as currency even earlier.
