Minted in various versions, according to the year minted, the Athenian tetradrachm was a very popular and diachronic coin. Its production started at about 510 BC, and it introduced the "Attic" standard of 4,3 gr as the new standard in coins' weight. The Lavrion mines with their plenty supply of silver and the increasing dominance of the city of Athens in trade, made this new weight standard a famous standard. Tetradrachms with the same weight continued to be the most widely used coins through the Hellenistic period and afterward by the Hellenistic monarchs.
