What are some good books on the history of gold as money?

Lately I've been finding myself trying to learn more online about about the history of gold and why and how this one metal became the accepted store of value that it did. What are some great books about this? There must be some classics.

First time poster! This place is incredible.

A good one

Not focused on gold but super enlightening about banking.

If you're not familiar another alternative. I think this is part one of ten.
