Achaemenid coinage (546–330 BCE)

The first type of Siglos (Type I: “King with bow and arrows”, upper body of the king only), from the time of Darius I. Circa 520–505 BCE
Daric gold coin (c.490 BCE), one of the most successful of Antiquity.

When Cyrus the Great (550–530 BC) came to power, coinage was unfamiliar in his realm. Barter and to some extent silver bullion was used instead for trade.[2] The practice of using silver bars for currency also seems to have been current in Central Asia from the 6th century.[3]
