Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
Avraham minted his own universally accepted coin. Who else did so?
וַיֵּ֣לֶךְ אַבְרָ֗ם כַּאֲשֶׁ֨ר דִּבֶּ֤ר אֵלָיו֙ ה' וַיֵּ֥לֶךְ אִתּ֖וֹ ל֑וֹט וְאַבְרָ֗ם בֶּן־חָמֵ֤שׁ שָׁנִים֙ וְשִׁבְעִ֣ים שָׁנָ֔ה בְּצֵאת֖וֹ מֵחָרָֽן׃
Abram went forth as the LORD had commanded him, and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he left Haran.
Avraham was one of only 4 people who ever minted a coin that was universally accepted.
The others were Yehoshua, King David, and Mordechai.
(Bereshit Rabbah, Yafeh Tohar p.239)
