No, that's still currency: wealth exchanged for something else.
No, that's not currency at all. Exchanging one thing that has intrinsic value (be it grain or latinum) for another thing that has intrinsic value is bartering.

Currency is assigning a set arbitrary value to something and using it for trade.
