A great variety of commodities (wheat, salt, gold, silver) has served at one time or another as a medium of exchange in economies based on the division of labour. This form of money is generally referred to as commodity money. At the same time other forms of money developed. They are referred to as credit money or money without material value because their value as a means of payment is greater than their intrinsic value. For instance, the paper on which a 100 banknote is printed is worth much less than the banknote’s face value. This is also true of most of the coins used nowadays. In addition to the notes and coins in circulation, ‘cashless’ means of payment were introduced.

These include checks, transfer orders and credit cards, which have become more and more popular in recent years. The progress made in computer technology has led to new forms of cashless payments. These forms of money, which were mentioned above, can be subsumed under the terms ‘cash or notes and coin’ and ‘deposit or giro money’.
