A coin is a flat small round piece of metal that is mainly used as an exchange medium. Usually, they have a standard weight and are produced in huge quantities to facilitate trade. The government of a particular country is responsible for issuing coins. Typically coins have numerals, texts, and images on them. They are disc shaped and made of metal or an alloy and, at times, are made using human-made materials. Coins have a critical history from the early times to the present and are linked to the history of coin collecting. The earliest coins are thought to have their history at Ephesus, the great temple of Artemis, where evidence for the initial coin known from the accent world is found. Some of the coins thought to have their origins in ancient times are the Lydian lion coins manufactured from electrum, a naturally occurring alloy of silver and gold. The coins' high value was revealed by a royal lion symbol stamped on the coin like a seal. There has been a variety of coin minting technologies. Initially, coins were made of scrap metal. The early coins were shaped by hitting a hammer placed above an anvil. The first coins have a coarse incuse where the hammer was directly beaten onto the reverse. Other technologies would then emerge, one of which was using a punch to advance the hammer's aim, leading to the desired pattern. Chinese were mainly producing cast coinage which spread to Japan and South-East Asia. Averagely, the government produced very few coins in china. Instead, counterfeiters produced coins as common practice
