The study of monetary systems in the history of Africa is a subject that by its nature crosses disciplinary boundaries, covering more than 4,000 years of African history and a huge and varied geographical and cultural area.1 There is a clear need to bring together evidence from fields of study including numismatics, ethnography, archaeology, geography, politics and history, as well as linguistics, literature, religion, and other disciplines. In some of these areas the empirical evidence needs building, and in others there is a need to develop better theoretical understanding.

Ranging from the 10th century ad to the present day, the chapters cover the pre-colonial and colonial currencies of Africa, including copper, cowry shells, beads, manillas and gin; and coins, counterfeiting, banking and the symbolism of money in modern Africa.
