The Lydian Lion

Northwest Territorial Mint: Did You Know?The 'Lydian Lion' is an early 6th century BC coin from Lydia, and is considered to possibly be the earliest coin ever minted in the Western world. Small as a dime and thick as a small pebble, this coin was minted around 600 BC in Lydia, Asia Minor (current-day Turkey), a country in close proximity to both the civilizations of Mesopotamia, from which ideas about money and much else originated, and the Greek colonies in Asia Minor, through which ideas about coinage and much else spread.
