Evidence suggests that rice may have been the first commodity since the Chinese began trading it about 6,000 years ago. In 4,500 and 4,000 BC, the Sumerian civilization (* the region that is now modern-day Iraq) began using clay tokens as a primitive form of money to purchase livestock. Buyers would place these tokens in sealed clay vessels and record the quantities, times and dates of the transactions on writing tablets. In exchange for the vessels, merchants would deliver goats to the buyers. These transactions constituted a primitive form of commodity futures contracts. Other civilizations soon began using valuable such as pigs and seashells as forms of money to purchase commodities. Eventually, however, the ancient Greeks and Romans settled on gold and silver as the favored currencies for transacting business in commodities. These civilizations prized gold and silver for their luster and physical beauty. In addition, since gold and silver are rare and can be melted, shaped and measured into coins of equal size, they logically evolved into monetary assets. Ultimately, exchanging gold for goods and services became the preferred means of commerce in the ancient world and led gold to become the first widely traded commodity.
