History of banks closely related money with history, but all the same bank transactions, possibly, preceded the invention of money. Deposits originally consisted of grain, and then from other goods, including a horned cattle, agricultural stock, and in the issue precious metals, such as gold, in the form of plates convenient for resocks. Temples and palaces served as the most safe places for gold storage. As holy sites, temples represented the additional deterrent from potential thieves.

Dealers of the ancient world who yielded credits for farmers and the merchants transporting the goods between cities were the First bankers. The first mentions of such activity are dated about 2000 BC in Assyria and Babylon. Later in the Ancient Greece and at the time of Roman empire issue of credits has been organised in temples. During this period there is a similar certificate of independent development of credit money in Ancient China and separately in ancient India.
