Rádio ZigZag, of RTP media group, challenged us to create a radio broadcast for children 5 to 9 to tell the many stories and curiosities that money contains.
We said yes! Of course! How did banks appear? What is bartering? Who invented the piggy bank? Can you think of coins other than round-shaped coins? Do you know the name of the first Portuguese coin? Is it possible to trade in silence? When did we start using euro banknotes and coins?
If you’d like to know the answer to these and many other questions, you will enjoy listening to “Change for Exchange” here (only available in Portuguese): http://www.rtp.pt/play/zigzag/p5074/troco-por-trocas
