The Incas did not get round to using coins, which were introduced by the Spanish.
Silver was discovered in 1545 at Potosi which is now in Bolivia, but was then known as Alto Perú (Upper Peru), and a mint was established there shortly afterwards. This mint operated intermittently at times. Bolivia became independent of Peru in 1825.
In Spanish there is still a saying, valer un potosí, "to be worth a potosí" (that is, "a fortune").
