The first coins were made of electrum in Asia Minor, an alloy of gold and silver in the late 7th BC century. In the front side of the coin were shown the respective symbols of the cities, the deities who protected the cities, mythical persons or regional products of the cities, visualizations that made recognizable their origin.
The precious metal, which was mainly silver, set the value of the coin, the small shape made it easy to carry and the symbol of each issuing authority was the guarantee of weight and authenticity. At the end of the 5th century BC, copper coins were produced, in order to be used for the small daily transactions.
