During this period the three great religions flourished (Christianity, Islam and Buddhism) and great commercial networks were established between civilizations.

The mercantile network that settled between Western Europe, Byzantium, Russia, the Islamic empires and the Far-East civilizations contributed in the exchange of currencies. It is here where Numismatics was born, at first, as a result of the curiosity of the merchants.In the Age of Discoveries commerce expanded again, this time globally.
