No single person can be considered the inventor of money, but the first piece of metal to be considered a coin was found in Turkey in 670 BCE. But long before money was used people traded items. For example, a basket of berries was traded for six ears of corn or a cow was traded for 10 chickens. But what if the person with berries wanted wheat instead of corn?

Eventually, it made sense to have something that always had the same value and was easy to carry; this resulted in what we use now - money. - 4to40.com; blurtit.com; wiki.answers.com
