Cowry shells were used for centuries as currency in Africa. After the 1500s, however, it became even more ubiquitous. Western nations, chiefly through the slave trade, introduced huge amounts of Maldivian cowries in Africa. The Ghanaian unit of currency known as the Ghanaian cedi was named after cowry shells. Starting over three thousand years ago, cowry shells, or copies of the shells, were used as Chinese currency. They were also used as means of exchange in India.
