Understanding Money: The World of Coins

Well, hello there 👋 Welcome back to class. As we’re sure you’ll remember, last week we told you all about how humanity came up with the concept of money. If you’ve *ahem* forgot, then we’d recommend you check out the first chapter. Are we up to date? Good. Time to learn about coins. I know y’all can’t wait to learn about the fiat, and banks, and stonks, but before we can get to any of that, we need to understand why coins popularised one form of money over others.
