The origins of coinage

In order to find out when and where coins originated, one must look back to Lydia, an Ancient Greek kingdom in Asia Minor, during the seventh century BCE. It is not surprising that the Greeks invented coinage; they were also the creators of democracy, modern philosophy and many other things that influence our culture today. However, without their invention of coinage, our world today may have been very different.
