COINS AND TRANSACTIONS. FROM YESTERDAY TO NOWADAYS
Dr Dimitra Tsangari
10.00€

The publication “Coins and Transactions. From yesterday to nowadays” was issued on the occasion of the Educational Program of the same title, in the form of a museum-kit, which was designed by the Alpha Bank Numismatic Collection. The publication presents the history of transactions from antiquity to nowadays, with an emphasis on the way of trading of the modern era.

From the exchange system of the first societies (barter), we passed to the transactions with animals, then with metals of various forms to reach the coin, which, from the middle of the 7th century BC, was established as the predominant means of transaction. The use of coin changed substantially the human way of life and shaped our culture.

Today, in the era of Information and the Digital Revolution, consumer habits, lifestyles and the organization of the economy and society inevitably lead to the adoption of new and innovative forms of trade, gradually replacing the use of coin, the dominant means of transaction for more than 2,500 years.
