Origin and Development of Money

Money has developed in step with the diversification and increasing frequency of transactions. From a barter system, where one good was traded for another, to commodity money, a standardized currency system was developed where the nation mints coins and issues banknotes. Then the system evolved into a credit money system, which has since even advanced to the stage of using plastic and electronic forms of money.
