Lead Currencies are currencies with a dominant influence on other currency systems. They are a great way to learn about the history in general and of money in specific. The MoneyMuseum put together a booklet by selecting five lead currencies of antiquity, middle ages and modern times. These coins tell their stories in an entertaining way.
