What year did the world start using paper money and coins?
Coins and paper money have been in use for millennia so there's no recorded history of their very first use. Coins have been traced back as far as the Lydians in the 8th century BCE, while paper money was introduced by the Chinese during the Tang dynasty (7th to 10th centuries)

Privately issued paper money has been in use since the colonial times. Individual banks and other companies produced it, and if you trusted that bank, you accepted it. Benjami…n Franklin was a noted producer of colonial notes. The U.S. itself did not start producing its own paper money until the Civil War era, in the 1860's
Russia uses both paper and coins.
1862 was the first year the US government officially issued paper money. However various other agencies, banks, etc. issued paper bills as far back as the Revolution. The C…ontinental Congress famously issued "Continental Currency" to pay for the war. It had no backing and rapidly became worthless, leading to the expression "not worth a Continental" which remained in common use for decades afterwards.
First created and used by the Chinese
The first paper money used in the United States was in 1862!
At least one country uses only paper money - Zimbabwe. The reason is that inflation is so high they can't mint coins that would be worth less than the rise in prices.
George Washington is on the 1$ bill and the quarter. it has other faces too and can be found in other countries
I assume you're asking why we have both coins and paper money. The simple answer is that coins are much easier to use and more durable, especially in small denominations becau…se those amounts are used much more often. For example, most transactions involve a few pennies here and there. If there were a one-cent bill you'd be carrying dozens of them after a while, and they'd wear out very quickly from all the handling. The government would have to print tens of billions of 1-cent bills every year just to keep up with demand. 1-cent coins, however, last for 40 or 50 years on average so it's a lot easier and cheaper to make them from metal. When you get to higher denominations, it's more cost-effective to print bills because they don't get used as often. That's why $50 bills sometimes circulate for 30 or more years before they wear out. The place where things become interesting is when you're dealing with low-denomination bills. $1 bills are needed A LOT in change-making, so they wear out very quickly - anywhere from 12 to 18 months on average. It then becomes expensive to print all the $1 bills needed which is why many people are calling for them to be replaced with a coin that would last 25 or 30 years. Most countries have already done that; in fact, Canada has $2 coins and the EU has â¬2 coins. For a number of reasons, political groups in the U.S. have lobbied in favor of keeping the $1 bill even though the government estimates it would save about $500 million to $1 billion a year if we used a $1 coin instead.
The first coins were stamped around 650 - 600 BD by the Lydians. Some believe that the Ancient Egyptians were the first to invent and use coin money. The first paper money …is believed invented by the Romans around 100 AD.
The Massachusetts Bay Colony issued the first paper money in 1690. The colonies would later form the United States. The first federally-issued paper money was printed in 18…61 and 1862, to help pay for the Civil War.
a long time ago, they used to just trade with items. gold and silver was used and also, believe it or not they used giraffe tails, porpoise teeth and woodpecker scalps.
China began to use paper money during the Tang dynasty because of its lightness and other aspects. People could now carry money without the anxiety of a robber stealing it bec…ause they would have no need for money outside of china. also, paper money could be carried i larger loads because it didnt weigh as much as coins or gold did. finally, paper money allowed the government to enforce greater regulation due to being the only manufacturer of the product.
Paper money of-course because its physical and mental appearance is certainly not a coin.
the Chinese started using paper in the 9th century
Evidentally not! Plenty of ancient coins have survived from Greece, the Roman Empire, etc, but nothing from Egypt.l Paper money was too far ahead of the time, anyhow ( The Chi…nese, who perfected papermaking, came out with some in the l2Th Century AD) Evidentally they had what amounted to a moneyless economy! Of course the slaves did not need or use money, and the nobles had everything on the House ( or pyramid). It does pose the problem of a moneyless society that was nonetheless advanced with a Capital A,.No
