What was the world's first coin?

This one gave us a run for our money.

The earliest known coins date bate to about 600 B.C. and were struck in Lydia and Ionia, which is now Turkey.

The Lydian third stater or trite or Lydian Lion, possibly minted by King Alyattes, is believed to be the world's first coin, though other coins from the area via for the title.

The Lydian third stater was made of electrum, an alloy of gold and silver, and was the first coin to have certified markings on it to hold a definite exchange value and issued by governmental authority to be used as money. These traits meet the dictionary definition of a coin an thus we present it as the world's first coin.
