The History of Money Clips
The money clip is a relatively recent addition to the arsenal of accessories that a man or woman might carry. Paper currency was first developed in China during the seventh century during a shortage of copper; however a paper money system did not appear in Europe until around 1690, and was phased out in China shortly after it was introduced. Throughout the ages, metal has been used as a currency, including the use of bullion economies around the world, such as through Danelaw between 865 and 940 AD.
During the 1690s, England began to produce paper money to facilitate the movement of goods and services throughout the population whilst colonising and exploring the world. Due to the sheer heaviness of metal money, it was largely impractical to carry and use coins for most expeditions.
The modern money clip was patented in 1901, but the original design for the money clip featured a chain to ensure it was kept safe. In 1931, a different patent was files for a money clip without a chain, which is more akin to what we recognise today as a money clip. Before these clips were patented, most paper money was stored inside a pocket, or in change purses. In some instances, people carried their cash around with them wrapped in folded piece of fabric.
