The Story Of Money

by, Betsy Maestro

Why was money made?

Paper money was first invented in China by a man named Mono Polo. We needed money for a new object of trade. We have tried shells,wood,rugs,etc. But they needed a specific trade item. So they invented paper with a code/object on it to prove that it was real. This still carries on today.

When and Where was money made?

Money was first brought to attention in 618-907 A.D. This all happened in China and Europe. It was first used for private bills. It then caught on and became global. Money started out as slips and was hand made. Now, we have large factories that make it really fast. People then organize it to try to spot any mistakes. Then, it is all shipped off to banks
