The word "money" is believed to originate from a temple of
Capitoline, one of Rome's seven hills. In the ancient world Juno was often associated with money. The temple of
Juno Moneta at Rome was the place where the mint of Ancient Rome was located.
 The name "Juno" may derive from the Etruscan goddess
Uni (which means "the one", "unique", "unit", "union", "united") and "Moneta" either from the Latin word "monere" (remind, warn, or instruct) or the Greek word "moneres" (alone, unique).
In the Western world, a prevalent term for coin-money has been
specie, stemming from Latin in specie, meaning 'in kind'.
