“Money acts as a medium of exchange.”
Partly true: Any commodity can act as a medium of exchange, e.g. marbles for yo-yos.
Money actually acts as a medium of indirect exchange. Money tends to have value in excess of its commodity value because of its acceptance as a medium of indirect exchange for commodities of greater value.
