ExcerptThe effigy of Asklepios/Esculap on coins and medals, throughout the ages.
The coin, an invention of the ancient Greeks of Lydia and Asia Minor in the 7th century BC, originally appeared as an intrinsic value piece designed for trade. The first coins issued for this purpose were engraved with symbols, representing distinctive effigies of cities or kingdoms involved in trade. Subsequently, effigies of protective gods such as Zeus, Athens, Apollo, Helios, Dionysus, Heracles or Asklepios / Esculap began to appear on these coins, and then inscriptions and effigies of leaders, kings and regents who considered themselves divine representatives of the gods listed above. The monetary evolution also focused on topics related to medicine such as the depicting of Asklepios/Esculap, or “Salus ” – Hygeia, meaning health and appearing on Roman coins. The effigy of Asklepios/Esculap will then be a constant medallic landmark to this day.
