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
First created and used by the Chinese
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… because 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 €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 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 186…1 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.
Paper money of-course because its physical and mental appearance is certainly not a coin.
Nearly all countries have both paper money and coins. Coins are used for low-denomination amounts because they get a lot of use and paper bills would wear out too quickly; the…y're also easier to use in vending machines and to process in counting machines. Bills are used for higher amounts because coins would be too large and/or it would be too difficult to create enough easily-distinguished sizes and designs to cover all denominations from 1¢ to $100. Because higher denominations tend to get less wear(*), it's more cost-effective to issue them as bills than coins. (*) The US is unusual among industrialized countries in its reliance on a relatively low-denomination paper $1 bill. Due to inflation the purchasing power of a $1 bill is less than a quarter from the 1970s and a dime from the 1950s. Thus the $1 bill fills the same role as those coins once did in change-making, and must be produced in enormous quantities each year because they wear out in 18 to 24 months. By contrast most other countries now have coins in amounts equivalent to anywhere from US$2 to US$4, with expected life spans of 30 to 50 years in average use.
Fiat money is a suitable substitute used for trade barter.
The motto reads "In God We Trust". It should be noted that the motto was added to coinage and currency during troubled times when people needed to reinforce the belief tha…t the God of the Bible is on our side. The phrase was added to currency during the same decade "One Nation Under God" was added to the Pledge of Allegiance as a similar response to "godless communism". Coins The motto was first put on 2Â¢ pieces in 1864, during the Civil War, as an expression of faith in terrible times. It was gradually added to other denominations of coins over the years; the last denomination to get the motto was the nickel starting in 1938. Bills Many people are surprised to find older paper money without the motto, but in fact its use wasn't extended to bills until about a half-century ago. In response to the perceived threat of "godless communism" during the Cold War, in 1955 Congress ordered that the motto also be placed on paper money. The first bills to carry it were $1 silver certificates printed during and after 1957. These included a new 1957-dated series and some 1935-G and all 1935-H bills that were printed at the same time. By 1963 all other denominations had been redesigned to include the motto as well. Rumors of Removal Rumors persist among right-wing and fundamentalist religious groups that there is a "conspiracy" to remove the motto from American money. Those rumors were made worse when a few 2007-dated Presidential dollars were accidentally minted without the motto when mint employees forgot to add edge lettering to several batches of the new coins. Despite the fact that the mistake also deleted the coins' date, mint mark, and the motto "E Pluribus Unum" as well as "In God We Trust", the error was seized on as another example of a clandestine attempt to secularize American currency. In reality the presence of the motto is not an issue for the vast majority of Americans, and there are NO plans whatsoever to change it.
