you can't get steel without money.

You can get steel by smelting iron with coal. You can get iron from the ground. You can get coal from the ground. You can heat the mixture by using coal to make fire. You can contain the heat with a brick enclosure. Mortar is made from stuff you get from the ground. Bricks are made with sand and water and cement, if I remember correctly.

Anyway, I think you get the point. I desperately hope so. You can get steel without money.

it's the only thing that gives those other materials thier value.

Materials and goods and services (and some other things) are the only thing that gives money its value. Money doesn't give these things their value: they would have value in a barter system. They have innate value. A barter system is just alot less efficient than one with currency because the value of currency is not dependent on the circumstances of the individual holding it, whereas the value of iron and coal and things with specific uses is.
