Metal money - hidden narratives

Free admission

Thousands of years ago, metals revolutionised the history of civilisation. What is their contribution to the history of money as a value measure, and how has our fascination with them inspired legends and narratives? 

Thousands of years ago, metals revolutionised the history of civilisation. From copper to gold, the constant search for metals defined mentalities and ideologies and constructed different paradigms in political, economic and commercial development, but how were those resources discovered and exploited? What is their contribution to the history of money as a value measure, and how has our fascination with them inspired legends and narratives? 
And today, will metals maintain their importance of yore? Is their exploitation sustainable?
