Become an eyewitness to the history of cash and coin and get an up-close look at currency with DK Eyewitness Books: Money.

From the earliest forms of money to the intricate banking systems we have today, currency has been around for millennia, whether made from stones and shells to the coins and paper we see today. This guide details various types of currency from both the past and present, from the sea salt money of Ethiopia to the modern Euro. Discover where the term piggy bank came from, why Ancient Greeks put coins in the mouths of dead people, and how coins and banknotes are made today.

Available for the first time in paperback and full of stunning, real-life photography of rare coins and unique currency, DK Eyewitness Books: Money is an exciting look at the diverse world of money.

Each revised Eyewitness book retains the stunning artwork and photography from the groundbreaking original series, but the text has been reduced and reworked to speak more clearly to younger readers. Still on every colorful page: vibrant annotated photographs and the integrated text-and-pictures approach that makes Eyewitness a perennial favorite of parents, teachers, and school-age kids.

I may be an adult, but I LOVE reading the eyewitness books. I learn so much from them. This book tells of the birth of the monetary system and even breaks them up by country. It shows modern and ancient forms of money. After reading it, I almost want to start a coin collection! Bottom line great book for kids and grown ups alike.
