Coins are one of the longest lasting means of exchange, the first records appear before 4,500 years ago, but the real boom came with ancient Greece, where standardize weight and fineness. Today, coins are still an indispensable part of the monetary system, but their role has changed considerably. Modern coin is in itself no value and if it is not assured for the state and would be a mere piece of sheet metal. In the past, it was vice versa, because the coins were minted mainly made of precious metals (gold, silver) and accounting for value and without state guarantees. Production of coins is increasingly expensive, and micro-payment systems are constantly improving. It is therefore possible that one day we have no coins in your wallet will not rattle.
Types, shapes, denominations, composition and appearance of the coins used are set out the relevant State legislation which applies or applied, or bank or other authority that has emission rights. The front side of the coin is called the obverse - (front), rear reverse - (reverse). Face is always the side where the denomination of the coin shows. Nowadays, most coins are minted. In the past, we know the coin cast. Coins deals with basic historical science called numismatics.
Originally, coins were the same value as a precious metal from which they were produced. Actually represented a Mint official confirmation that the metal piece has a certain weight and a certain quality. Later he began to downplay the coin admixture of cheaper metals and their value began to be associated with a sovereign credibility, which is issued. Various coins had a different reputation abroad and are valued differently. Finally there was the fact that the material value of the coins is lower than their nominal value. The coin is now basically just "metal bill." With ongoing inflation, however, occurs at lower denominations of coins to the paradoxical phenomenon. Production costs exceed their nominal value. With additional material price inflation is increasing and coins usually stops their emissions or are withdrawn from circulation. In the event that the price of metal coins exceeds its nominal value, the coins disappear from circulation alone. Usually this happens when hyperinflation.
