About this image

Most people think of money as paper bills or coins. But money is really anything that people use to buy things. People have used different kinds of money throughout history. For example, people in ancient Rome used pieces of bronze and copper called denarii. In medieval England, people used a system called barter. They would trade goods and services instead of using money. Today, we use paper bills and metal coins, but we also use electronic systems like credit cards and PayPal.
