Han-dynasty in China (206 BC- 220 CE). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Han_Dynasty In 118 B.C., coins "Wuzhu" (five "zhu", a "zhu"-a weight unit approximately 0.66 gram) were cast. The currency system "Wuzhu" had since been established. After the Eastern Han, the currency system "Wuzhu" was undermined by the appearance of various inferior coins. At the end of the Western Han, Wang Mang waged four reforms of currency system. The reforms failed due to the fact that the grading category was too complicated. However, coins of this period were well known for their elegant style and fine workmanship. The Wu Zhu coins were a reform to regularize the currency after the anarchy of the Ban Liang coins, which anyone could cast in any size they wanted. They were made to a standard module from about 118 BC until after the end of the Han dynasty in 221 AD (with time out for Wang Mang). After the end of the Han Dynasty the denomination persisted, but people started fooling around with them, making them smaller, adding extra characters, etc. All told the Wu Zhu coins were made for about 700 years.
