A comprehensive handbook on the origins of coinage and a detailed catalogue of Archaic Electrum coins, the very first coins ever, and the dominant coinage until the reign of Croesus of Lydia (561-545 BC), whose refining and minting of a gold and silver coinage marked the end of a century of Electrum and started the worldwide spread of coinage. The book describes the region and history of Lydia and the neighbouring Greek colonies in Ionia focusing on the catalysts for the development of coinage. The final publication of Dennis McMillan.
