    Yes they did.

    Merchants do not produce (as in manufacture) gold coins.

    Gold in antiquity was mostly found in the sediment of stream beds, one method of capturing it is to use a sheep's fleece (gold dust is trapped in the wool). Hence the legend of a golden fleece. It has value because it is rare and does not tarnish.

    The oldest known map of a gold mine was drawn in the 19th Dynasty of Ancient Egypt (1320–1200 BC), whereas the first written reference to gold was recorded in the 12th Dynasty around 1900 BC. Egyptian hieroglyphs from as early as 2600 BC describe gold, which King Tushratta of the Mitanni claimed was "more plentiful than dirt" in Egypt. Egypt and especially Nubia had the resources to make them major gold-producing areas for much of history. One of the earliest known maps, known as the Turin Papyrus Map, shows the plan of a gold mine in Nubia together with indications of the local geology.  Large mines were also present across the Red Sea in what is now Saudi Arabia.

    For the second time. Gold can be found anywhere - for instance you could still find enough Scotland, Wales or Ireland to make a wedding ring if you were patient and lucky.

    Where did you think it came from?

    For the third time:

    "Because gold is dispersed widely throughout the geologic world, its discovery occurred to many different groups in many different locales. And nearly everyone who found it was impressed with it, and so was the developing culture in which they lived."


    No one can point to the first place where gold was discovered - it was valuable because it was shiny, did not rust or lose it's shine, and was easy to work.
