The first coin was created

around 650 BC in the Mediterranean basin. Its inventor was Gyges, a king of Lydia, a country in Asia Minor near the Aegean Sea. Before that, however, China was one of the first countries in the world to use cowrie shells as currency, as early as the end of the Neolithic period. Some pieces were produced in hundreds, others in thousands, but they all come from the depths of time, reminding us that trade between humans is as old as the hills, but that it did not prevent beauty from expressing itself through this simple everyday object.
