"to make money" origins?

Does anybody know what are the origins of the phrase "to make money?"

I have heard it so much that it never occurred to me until today that it is not literal in meaning. When you make money you do not literally print out the paper and cut out the shapes, etc.

Is it English-only or does it exist in other languages? Any ideas?
