Smith's Bible Dictionary - Silver
In very early times silver was used for ornaments, (Genesis 24:53 ) and for vessels of various kinds. Images for idolatrous worship were made of silver or overlaid with it, (Exodus 20:23 ; Hosea 13:2 ); Habb 2:19 Baruch 6:39 , and the manufacture of silver shrines for Diana was a trade in Ephesus. (Acts 19:24 ) But its chief use was as a medium of exchange, and throughout the Old Testament we find "silver" used for money, like the French argent . Silver was brought to Solomon from Arabia, ( 2 Chronicles 9:14 ) and from Tarshish, (2 Chronicles 9:21 ) which supplied the markets of Tyre. (Ezekiel 27:12 ) From Tarshish it came int he form of plates, (Jeremiah 10:9 ) like those on which the sacred books of the Singhalese are written to this day. Spain appears to have been the chief source whence silver was obtained by the ancients. Possibly the hills of Palestine may have afforded some supply of this metal. Silvers mixed with alloy is referred to in (Jeremiah 6:30 ) and a finer kind, either purer in itself or more thoroughly purified, is mentioned in (Proverbs 8:19 )
Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - Silver
A — 1: ἀργύριον (Strong's #694 — Noun Neuter — argurion — ar-goo'-ree-on ) is rendered "silver" in Acts 3:6 ; 8:20 , RV (AV, "money"); 20:33; 1 Corinthians 3:12 (metaphorical); 1 Peter 1:18 . See MONEY , PIECE.
A — 2: ἄργυρος (Strong's #696 — Noun Masculine — arguros — ar'-goo-ros ) akin to argos, "shining," denotes "silver." In each occurrence in the NT it follows the mention of gold, Matthew 10:9 ; Acts 17:29 ; James 5:3 ; Revelation 18:12 .
Note: For drachme, Luke 15:8 , see PIECE.
B — 1: ἀργύρεος (Strong's #693 — Adjective — argureos — ar-goo'-reh-os ) signifies "made of silver," Acts 19:24 ; 2 Timothy 2:20 ; Revelation 9:20 .
Easton's Bible Dictionary - Shrines, Silver
Little models and medallions of the temple and image of Diana of Ephesus (Acts 19:24 ). The manufacture of these was a very large and profitable business.
Easton's Bible Dictionary - Silver
Used for a great variety of purposes, as may be judged from the frequent references to it in Scripture. It first appears in commerce in Genesis 13:2 ; 23:15,16 . It was largely employed for making vessels for the sanctuary in the wilderness (Exodus 26:19 ; 27:17 ; Numbers 7:13,19 ; 10:2 ). There is no record of its having been found in Syria or Palestine. It was brought in large quantities by foreign merchants from abroad, from Spain and India and other countries probably.
Holman Bible Dictionary - Silver
A comparatively scarce precious metal with a brilliant white color and remarkably resistant to oxidation. It melts at 960.8 C (1,861 F). Biblical references often refer to the process for refining silver (1 Chronicles 29:4 ; Psalm 12:6 ; Proverbs 17:3 ; Ezekiel 22:20-22 ). It is so malleable that it is beaten into sheets as thin as 0.00025 mm. Until about 500 B.C., silver was the most valuable metal in the Near East. Thus, in most of the Old Testament it is given a priority over gold. Only in Chronicles and Daniel is gold considered to have more worth. Hence the analogy that in Jerusalem silver was as common as stone (1 Kings 10:27 ; 2 Chronicles 9:27 ) is reflective of the lavish wealth of Solomon's empire. Coins were first minted after 700 B.C., but weight continued to be the most common standard of determining value. In the New Testament period, the drachma, a silver coin, was required for the Temple tax. Figuratively, refining silver is used in the Bible for testing human hearts (Psalm 66:10 ; Isaiah 48:10 ; compare 1 Corinthians 3:10-15 ) and the purity of God's word (Psalm 12:6 ). Wisdom is declared to be of more value than silver (Job 28:10-15 ; Proverbs 3:13-14 ; Proverbs 8:10 ,Proverbs 8:10,8:19 ; Proverbs 16:16 ). See Coins ; Gold ; Money.

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Silver
Hebrew keceph , Greek arguros . The only one of the four metals, gold, silver, brass, and iron, not mentioned until after the deluge. Abraham paid Ephron for the cave of Machpelah "400 shekels of silver, current money with the merchant" (Genesis 23:16). By this time it had become a recognized standard of value and medium of exchange. It probably was not coined, but bars of silver were probably formed in conventional shapes and marked with some sign to note their weight. The thousand ("pieces" is not in the Hebrew) of silver given by Abimelech to Abraham probably indicate the value of the "sheep and oxen," etc., which he gave (Genesis 20:14-16). (See MONEY.) Silver was brought to Solomon in lavish abundance from Arabia and Tarshish (in plates like the Cingalese sacred writing tablets). 2 Chronicles 9:14; 2 Chronicles 9:21; 1 Kings 10:21-27. Idols were generally wood inside, plated over with silver (Jeremiah 10:9; Isaiah 30:22; Isaiah 40:19; Hosea 13:2; Habakkuk 2:19).
It was used for women's ornaments, Genesis 24:53; cups, Genesis 44:2; sockets and chapiters of the pillars of the tabernacle, Exodus 26:19; Exodus 27:10; Exodus 38:17; the two trumpets, Numbers 10:2; the temple candlesticks, etc., 1 Chronicles 28:15-17; the model shrines of Diana, Acts 19:24. There being mines ("vein") of silver and "dust of gold" is accurately noted in Job 28:1 (See METALS.) The Lord, with perfect wisdom and love, leaves His people in affliction till, their dross being purified, He sees them reflecting His holy image; just as a "refiner of silver" sits watching the melting silver until he sees his own image reflected, when he knows the silver has been long enough in the furnace and withdraws it (Malachi 3:3). (See MINES; LEAD.) Captain Burton's discovery of silver and gold and other metals in great abundance in the land of Midian, as well as the remains of ancient mine workings, remarkably confirms the Scripture account of Midian's wealth in the metals (Numbers 31:9; Numbers 31:22; Numbers 31:50-54; Judges 8:24-26). A forger would never have ascribed this kind of wealth to a nomadic people. (See MIDIAN; PARAN.)

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Silver
This was a source of wealth from early days. Abraham was rich in silver, Genesis 13:2 ; but with Solomon gold was so plentiful that silver was 'nothing accounted of.' 1 Kings 10:21 . The silver and gold which he had amassed were, alas, afterwards carried away to enrich their enemies because of the sins of Israel. 2 Chronicles 12:9 . Silver was also the common specie of commerce, 'pieces of silver' being weighed long before money was coined. Genesis 23:16 . Silver was used for the sockets, hooks, etc., in the tabernacle, the money paid for the redemption of the Israelites being applied to this purpose. Exodus 30:11-16 ; Exodus 38:25-28 . The house of God is founded on redemption. Exodus 36:24-36 ; Exodus 38:10-17 .
Silver is found in the earth (Job 28:1 ), and before it can be compared to 'the words of the Lord' it must be purified seven times. Psalm 12:6 ; Proverbs 25:4 .
THE SILVER CORD in Ecclesiastes 12:6 seems to refer to 'the thread of life,' which is loosed, or removed, when death ensues.

Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types - Silver
Exodus 36:24 (c) This precious metal is often used as a type of redemption. In this passage it refers probably to redemption as the foundation of the sinner's safety and his standing. The boards represent the Christians, while the silver sockets represent redemption. In the sandy desert, as well as in this wicked world, the sinner needs a sure foundation, a safe resting place. These sockets perhaps weighed one hundred pounds each. The board therefore rested on a solid foundation in the sand. So we "stand on redemption ground." We do not read of silver being in Heaven. No one in Heaven needs to be redeemed. (See also Exodus 30:15, and other places).

Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Silver
A. Noun.
Keseph (כֶּסֶף, Strong's #3701), “silver; money; price; property.” This word has cognates in Akkadian, Ugaritic, Phoenician, and Aramaic. It occurs about 402 times in biblical Hebrew and in all periods.
This word represents the “metal ore silver”: “Take away the dross from the silver, and there shall come forth a vessel for the finer” (Prov. 25:4; cf. Job 28:1).
Keseph may signify the “metal silver,” or what has been refined from silver ore: “And the servant brought forth jewels of silver, and jewels of gold …” (Gen. 24:53). As a precious metal “silver” was not as valuable as gold—probably because it is not so rare: “And all king Solomon’s drinking vessels were of gold, and all the vessels of the house of the forest of Lebanon were of pure gold; none were of silver: it was nothing accounted of in the days of Solomon” (1 Kings 10:21).
“Silver” was often a form of wealth. This is the meaning of keseph in Gen. 13:2 (the first biblical occurrence): “And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.” Silver pieces (not coins) were used as money: “Then Joseph commanded to fill their sacks with corn, and to restore every man’s money into his sack …” (Gen. 42:25). Frequently the word absolutely (by itself) and in the singular form means “pieces of silver”: “Behold, I have given thy brother a thousand pieces of silver …” (Gen. 20:16). In Lev. 25:50 the word is used in the general sense of “money, value, price”: “And he shall reckon with him that bought him from the year that he was sold to him unto the year of jubilee: and the price of his sale shall be according unto the number of years.…”
Since it was a form of wealth, “silver” often was one of the spoils of war: “The kings came, they fought; … they got no spoils of silver” (Judg. 5:19, RSV).
This word may be used in the sense of “valuable property”: “Notwithstanding, if he [1] continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money” (Exod. 21:21).
Keseph sometimes represents the color “silver”: “Though ye have lain among the pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold” (Ps. 68:13).
B. Verb.
Kasaph means “to long for.” Some scholars derive keseph from this verb which occurs 5 times in the biblical text. Kasaph means “to long for” in the sense of “to be pale by reason of longing”: “And now, though thou wouldest needs be gone, because thou sore longedst after thy father’s house, yet wherefore hast thou stolen my gods?” (Gen. 31:30).
Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Silver
כספּ? , Genesis 20:16 ; αργυριον , 1 Peter 1:15 ; Acts 3:4 ; Acts 20:33 ; a well known metal, of a white shining colour; next in value to gold. It does not appear to have been in use before the deluge; at least Moses says nothing of it; he speaks only of the metals brass and iron, Genesis 4:22 . But in Abraham's time it was become common, and traffic was carried on with it, Genesis 23:2 ; Genesis 23:15 . Yet it was not then coined, but was only in bars or ingots; and in commerce was always weighed.
American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Silver
One of the precious metals and the one most commonly used as coin among all nations. It is first mentioned in Scripture in the history of Abraham, Genesis 13:2 20:16 23:16 , and was used in constricting the tabernacle, Exodus 26:19,32 , and afterwards the temple, 1 Chronicles 29:4 . In employing it as a medium of trade, the ancient Hebrews weighed it out, instead of having coins. In the times of the New Testament there were coins. See SHEKEL , and MONEY .
Smith's Bible Dictionary - Piece of Silver
I. In the Old Testament the word "pieces" is used in the Authorized Version for a word understood in the Hebrew (if we except) (Psalm 68:30 ) The phrase is always "a thousand," or the like, "of silver." (Genesis 20:16 ; 37:28 ; 45:28 ; Judges 9:4 ; 16:5 ; 2 Kings 6:25 ; Hosea 3:2 ; Zechariah 11:12,13 ) In similar passages the word "shekels" occurs in the Hebrew. There are other passages in which the Authorized Version supplies the word "shekels" instead of "pieces," (22:19,29; Judges 17:2,3,4,10 ; 2 Samuel 18:11,12 ) and of these the first two require this to be done. The shekel, be it remembered, was the common weight for money, and therefore most likely to be understood in an elliptical phrase. The "piece" or shekel of silver weighed 220 grains, or about half an ounce, and was worth a little more than half a dollar (55 cents). II. In the New Testament two words are rendered by the phrase "piece of silver:"
Drachma , ( Luke 15:8,9 ) which was a Greek silver coin, equivalent, at the time of St. Luke, to the Roman denarias (15 or 16 cents).
Silver occurs only in the account of the betrayal of our Lord for "thirty pieces of silver." ( Matthew 26:15 ; 17:3,5,6,9 ) It is difficult to ascertain what coins are here intended. If the most common silver pieces be meant, they would be denarii. The parallel passage in Zachariah, (Zechariah 11:12,13 ) must, however, be taken into consideration where shekels (worth about 55 cents) must be understood. It is more probable that the thirty pieces of silver were tetradrachms than that they were denarii (80 cents).

Silver - In very early times Silver was used for ornaments, (Genesis 24:53 ) and for vessels of various kinds. Images for idolatrous worship were made of Silver or overlaid with it, (Exodus 20:23 ; Hosea 13:2 ); Habb 2:19 Baruch 6:39 , and the manufacture of Silver shrines for Diana was a trade in Ephesus. (Acts 19:24 ) But its chief use was as a medium of exchange, and throughout the Old Testament we find "silver" used for money, like the French argent . Silver was brought to Solomon from Arabia, ( 2 Chronicles 9:14 ) and from Tarshish, (2 Chronicles 9:21 ) which supplied the markets of Tyre. Spain appears to have been the chief source whence Silver was obtained by the ancients. Silvers mixed with alloy is referred to in (Jeremiah 6:30 ) and a finer kind, either purer in itself or more thoroughly purified, is mentioned in (Proverbs 8:19 )

Silver - The only one of the four metals, gold, Silver, brass, and iron, not mentioned until after the deluge. Abraham paid Ephron for the cave of Machpelah "400 shekels of Silver, current money with the merchant" (Genesis 23:16). It probably was not coined, but bars of Silver were probably formed in conventional shapes and marked with some sign to note their weight. The thousand ("pieces" is not in the Hebrew) of Silver given by Abimelech to Abraham probably indicate the value of the "sheep and oxen," etc. ) Silver was brought to Solomon in lavish abundance from Arabia and Tarshish (in plates like the Cingalese sacred writing tablets). Idols were generally wood inside, plated over with Silver (Jeremiah 10:9; Isaiah 30:22; Isaiah 40:19; Hosea 13:2; Habakkuk 2:19). There being mines ("vein") of Silver and "dust of gold" is accurately noted in Job 28:1 (See METALS. ) The Lord, with perfect wisdom and love, leaves His people in affliction till, their dross being purified, He sees them reflecting His holy image; just as a "refiner of Silver" sits watching the melting Silver until he sees his own image reflected, when he knows the Silver has been long enough in the furnace and withdraws it (Malachi 3:3). ) Captain Burton's discovery of Silver and gold and other metals in great abundance in the land of Midian, as well as the remains of ancient mine workings, remarkably confirms the Scripture account of Midian's wealth in the metals (Numbers 31:9; Numbers 31:22; Numbers 31:50-54; Judges 8:24-26)

Piece of Silver - In the Old Testament the word "pieces" is used in the Authorized Version for a word understood in the Hebrew (if we except) (Psalm 68:30 ) The phrase is always "a thousand," or the like, "of Silver. The "piece" or shekel of Silver weighed 220 grains, or about half an ounce, and was worth a little more than half a dollar (55 cents). In the New Testament two words are rendered by the phrase "piece of Silver:"

Money - --It is well known that ancient nations that were without a coinage weighed the precious metals, a practice represented on the Egyptian monuments, on which gold and Silver are shown to have been kept in the form of rings. We have no evidence of the use of coined money before the return from the Babylonian captivity; but Silver was used for money, in quantities determined by weight, at least as early as the time of Abraham; and its earliest mention is in the generic sense of the price paid for a slave. ( Genesis 17:13 ) The 1000 pieces of Silver paid by Abimelech to Abraham, ( Genesis 20:16 ) and the 20 pieces of Silver for which Joseph was sold to the Ishmaelites, ( Genesis 37:28 ) were probably rings such as we see on the Egyptian monuments in the act of being weighed. In the first recorded transaction of commerce, the cave of Machpelah is purchased by Abraham for 400 shekels of Silver. The shekel weight of Silver was the unit of value through the whole age of Hebrew history, down to the Babylonian captivity. 140; and it is now generally agreed that the oldest Jewish Silver coins belong to this period. With this Silver there was associated a copper coinage. In the money of the New Testament we see the native copper coinage side by side with the Graeco-Roman copper, Silver and gold.

Coin - They made use of uncoined shekels or talents of Silver, which they weighed out (Genesis 23:16 ; Exodus 38:24 ; 2 Samuel 18:12 ). Probably the Silver ingots used in the time of Abraham may have been of a fixed weight, which was in some way indicated on them. The "pieces of Silver" paid by Abimelech to Abraham (Genesis 20:16 ), and those also for which Joseph was sold (37:28), were proably in the form of rings. , "lambs") was the Hebrew Kesitah , Probably an uncoined piece of Silver of a certain weight in the form of a sheep or lamb, or perhaps having on it such an impression

Money - Scripture often speaks of gold, Silver, brass, of certain sums of money, of purchases made with money, of current money, of money of a certain weight; but we do not observe coined or stamped money till a late period; which makes it probable that the ancient Hebrews took gold and Silver only by weight; that they only considered the purity of the metal, and not the stamp. At the siege of Troy in Homer, no reference is made to gold or Silver coined; but the value of things is estimated by the number of oxen they were worth. Herodotus thinks that the Lydians were the first that stamped money of gold or Silver, and introduced it into commerce. Lycurgus banished gold and Silver from his commonwealth of Lacedaemon, and only allowed a rude sort of money, made of iron. In China, to this day, they stamp no money of gold or Silver, but only of copper. Gold and Silver pass as merchandise. If gold or Silver be offered, they take it and pay it by weight, as other goods: so that they are obliged to cut it into pieces with shears for that purpose, and they carry a steel yard at their girdles to weigh it. Abraham weighed out four hundred shekels of Silver, to purchase Sarah's tomb, Genesis 23:15-16 ; and Scripture observes that he paid this in "current money with the merchant. " Joseph was sold by his brethren to the Midianites for twenty pieces (in Hebrew twenty shekels) of Silver, Genesis 37:28 . Isaiah 46:6 , describes the wicked as weighing Silver in a balance, to make an idol of it; and Jeremiah 32:10 , weighs seventeen pieces of Silver in a pair of scales, to pay for a field he had bought. The metal, that is, gold or Silver, and never copper, that not being used in traffic as money. The alloy (standard) of pure or fine gold and Silver, and of good quality, as received by the merchant. The impression of the coinage is not referred to; but it is said they weighed the Silver, or other commodities, by the shekel and by the talent. Hence those deceitful balances of the merchants, who would increase the shekel, that is, would augment the weight by which they weighed the gold and Silver they were to receive, that they might have a greater quantity than was their due; hence the weight of the sanctuary, the standard of which was preserved in the temple to prevent fraud; hence those prohibitions in the law, "Thou shalt not have in thy bag divers weights," in Hebrew, stones, "a great and a small," Deuteronomy 25:13 ; hence those scales that the Hebrews wore at their girdles, Hosea 12:7 , and the Canaanites carried in their hands, to weigh the gold and Silver which they received in payment. There were shekels and demi-shekels, also the third part of a shekel, and a quarter of a shekel, of Silver. ...
The shekel of Silver, or the Silverling, Isaiah 7:23 , originally weighed three hundred and twenty barleycorns; but it was afterward increased to three hundred and eighty-four barleycorns, its value being considered equal to four Roman denarii, was two shillings and seven pence, or according to Bishop Cumberland, two shillings and four pence farthing. The gold coins were as follows; a shekel of gold was about fourteen and a half times the value of Silver, that is, one pound seventeen shillings and five pence halfpenny. A gold penny is stated by Lightfoot to have been equal to twenty-five Silver pence

Coins - Silver, gold, and copper in various forms, such as bars, bracelets, and the like represented wealth in addition to land, cattle, and slaves. The Silver shekel, weighing about four tenths of an ounce, became the standard measure. When Abraham bought the cave of Machpelah, he “weighed out four hundred shekels of Silver” (Genesis 23:16 ). ...
The talent was another weight frequently associated in the Old Testament with gold and Silver. After Judah's defeat at Megiddo, the victorious pharaoh appointed a puppet king and required the Jews to pay Egypt a heavy tribute in Silver and gold (2 Kings 23:33 ). Excavations in Shechem have uncovered a Greek Silver coin dating after 600 B. Only dominant political entities could produce Silver coins. It was a Silver coin usually minted in Rome. ...
Another reference to Silver money occurs in Matthew 26:15 in the agreement between the high priest and Judas for betraying Jesus. Although the original text mentions only “silver” with no specific coin, scholars feel that the figure “thirty” recalls the compensation required by law for killing a slave by accident ( Exodus 21:32 ). So, Judas' pay could have been thirty Silver shekels. It is possible also that the “large money” (KJV) paid to the soldiers guarding Jesus' tomb (Matthew 28:12 ) referred to large Silver coins or shekels

Money - Pheidon first coined Silver in the isle Aegina in the eighth or ninth century before Christ, some time between Jehoshaphat's and Hezekiah's reigns. The "thousand pieces of Silver" which Abimelech gave Abraham (Genesis 20:16) were of this kind; so the 400 shekels "weighed" by Abraham to Ephron (Genesis 23:3; Genesis 23:9; Genesis 23:16), "current (money) with the merchant"; implying that the Silver was in some conventional shapes, with a rude sign to mark its weight. and Septuagint "lambs," namely, lamb shaped or lamb stamped pieces of Silver, as pecunia , from pecus ; but the Arabic root implies equal division, or scales; Umbreit, "weighed out" (compare with Genesis 23:15-16), possibly each equal to four shekels; it is probably a ring-shaped ingot or a bar of Silver of a definite weight; Bochart from qasat , "pure" (Job 42:11). Silver money alone was used, the standard shekel weight being kept in the sanctuary under charge of the priests, from whence arose the phrase "the shekel of the sanctuary" (Exodus 30:18). The wedge or tongue of gold that Achan took was not money probably, as the 200 shekels of Silver were, but an article of value used for costly ornamentation. In Isaiah 46:6, however, gold seems to mean uncoined money, "they lavish gold out of the purse ('bag'), and weigh Silver in the balance. 5 grains under Alexandra to 55 under the early Ceasars; the Roman coinage, gold and Silver, in weights was conformed to the Greek, and the denarius the chief Silver coin was equivalent to the then depreciated Attic drachma.

Money - That the precious metals, gold and Silver, and to a less extent copper, were the ordinary media of exchange in Palestine from a time long prior to the appearance there of the Hebrews, is now amply attested by evidence from Egypt and Babylonia, and even from the soil of Palestine itself. The predominance of Silver as the metal currency for everyday transactions is further shown by the constant use in Hebrew literature of the word for ‘silver’ ( keseph ) in the sense of ‘money. ...
For the weighing of Silver, on the other hand, this shekel was discarded for practical reasons. Throughout the East in ancient times the ratio of gold to Silver was 13 1 /3:1, which means that a shekel of gold could buy 13 1 /3 times the same weight of Silver. On this, the so-called ‘astral mythology’ theory of the origin of Babylonian culture, gold, the yellow metal, was specially associated with the sun, while the paler Silver was the special ‘moon-metal. ...
In ordinary commerce, however, this ratio between the two chief media of exchange was extremely inconvenient, and to obviate this inconvenience, the weight of the shekel for weighing Silver was altered so that a gold shekel might be exchanged for a whole number of Silver shekels. On the one band, along the Babylonian trade-routes into Asia Minor the light Babylonian shekel of 126 grains was raised to 168 grains, so that 10 such shekels of Silver now represented a single gold shekel, since 126 × 13 1 /3 = 168 × 10. On the other hand, the great commercial cities of Phœnicia introduced a Silver shekel of 224 grains, 15 of which were equivalent to one heavy Babylonian gold shekel of 252 grains, since 252 × 13 1 /3 = 224 × 15. It was on this standard that the sacred dues of the Hebrews were calculated (see § 3 ); on it also the famous Silver shekels and half-shekels were struck at a later period (§ 5 ). ...
With regard, now, to the intrinsic value of the above gold and Silver shekels, all calculations must start from the mint price of gold, which in Great Britain is £3, 17s. represents the value as bullion of the Hebrew Silver shekel . ) Silver Shekel 224½ grs. ) Since the effective weight of the extant shekels is somewhat under the theoretical weight above given, the intrinsic value of any number of shekels of Silver may be found with sufficient accuracy by equating the shekel roughly with our half-crown (2s. ...
Although we have literary and numismatic evidence for the gold and Silver shekels of these tables only, it may now be regarded as certain that other standards were in use in Palestine in historic times for weighing the precious metals. That the light shekel of this standard, represented by the now familiar weights of 160 grains or thereby, inscribed netseph , was used for weighing Silver or gold or both is evident from the small denominations which have been recovered, such as the quarter netseph of 40 grs. Accordingly, when Abraham bought the field and cave of Machpelah he ‘weighed to Ephron the Silver … four hundred shekels of Silver, current money with the merchant’ ( Genesis 23:15 ). Similarly, the price which David paid for the threshing-floor of Araunah the Jebusite, 50 shekels of Silver ( 2 Samuel 24:24 ), will vary from £5 to £7 according to the standard adopted. The vases and other vessels of gold and Silver which are so frequently mentioned in ancient tribute lists also, in all probability, represented definite weights and values. This applies to gold as well as to Silver, e. Silverling
In this period, however, the wealthy commercial cities on the Phœnician seaboard Aradus, Sidon, Tyre, and others acquired the right of issuing Silver coins, which they naturally did on the native standard. In Exodus 30:13 and elsewhere this shekel is said to consist of 20 gerahs , which the Greek translators identified with the small Silver obol of the Gr. Alexander’s conquest of Syria was naturally followed by the introduction of his coinage in gold, Silver, and bronze. The tribute paid by the Jews to the third Ptolemy did not exceed the modest sum of 20 talents of Silver, or circa £4360. Now the Seleucids had continued Alexander’s Silver coinage on the Attic standard, the basis of which was the drachm of, originally, 67 grs. A series of Silver shekels and half-shekels on the Phœnician standard, bearing dates from ‘year 1’ to ‘year 5,’ has long been known to students. No Silver coins, it may be added, were struck by any of Simon’s successors, or even by the more powerful and wealthier Herod. 53, from which date the Roman monetary unit, the Silver denarius, with its subdivisions in copper, as quadrans, etc. Since the denarius was almost equal in weight to the Syrian-Attic drachm (§ 4) the Silver unit throughout the Seleucid empire the two coins were regarded as of equal value, and four denarii were in ordinary business the equivalent of a tetradrachm of Antioch. In our Lord’s day Tyre still continued to issue Silver and bronze coins, the former mainly tetradrachms or shekels on the old Phœnician standard (220 224 grs. The currency was in three metals: ‘get you no gold nor Silver nor brass (copper) in your purses’ ( Matthew 10:9 RV [2] ‘pieces of Silver’), if she lose one drachm,’ etc. The 50,000 ‘pieces of Silver’ (lit. ‘ Silverlings ’) of Acts 19:19 were denarius-drachms. The thirty ‘pieces of Silver’ for which Judas betrayed his Lord were also most probably Tyrian tetradrachms

To the above words used for money in general (though under slightly different aspects) may be added the comprehensive description of money in Matthew 10:9 in terms of the three metals used as specie—gold, Silver, and brass (or copper). This verse may be taken as evidence that gold as well as Silver and copper coins circulated in Palestine in the time of our Lord, although no gold coin is mentioned in the Gospels. In Silver there was more variety. The Roman denarius was, of course, largely, in evidence, and was probably the Silver coin in most common use. The supply of Silver from the mints at Tyre and Sidon, which continued to issue tetradrachms and didrachms under the Emperors,*
A vexed question, which cannot be held to be yet decided, is whether prior to the time of the first Jewish revolt any Silver coins had been produced in Palestine itself. Until lately it has been usual for numismatologists to assign to Simon Meccabaeus certain Silver shekels and half-shekels struck on the Phœnician standard, and bearing the inscription in Hebrew, ‘Jerusalem the Holy’ (Madden, Coins of the Jews, 65–71; Head, Hist. 379–383) and others for dating these coins rather in the time of the revolt under Nero; and the opinion seems to he making headway that at the time of our Lord, and previously, the Jews were dependent for their Silver money upon foreign sources. Unlike the foreign Silver money, they have, in deference to Jewish feeling, no Imperial effigy or the likeness of any living thing; even those of the procurators have only the name of the reigning Emperor, and innocent ears of corn, palm-trees, lilies, and the like. The extant coins contain no indication of value, nor can any safe inference be drawn from their weight, seeing that, where a Silver standard prevails, the copper coinage must always be very much of the nature of token money. This method of ascertaining the value of the Silver coins of the Gospels does justice to the fact that, in the Roman Empire then, as in Britain now, the value of Silver coins was legally defined in terms of the gold standard. —These may most conveniently be treated of under three heads: money of account, Silver coins, and copper coins. Talent (τάλαντον, Matthew 18:24; Matthew 25:15-16; Matthew 25:20; Matthew 25:22; Matthew 25:24-25; Matthew 25:28) is originally the name of the highest weight in the various systems of antiquity, hence the sum of money represented by that weight in gold or Silver. The talent of the Gospels, which is, of course, a talent of Silver, might conceivably be the Phœnician talent, but is far more probably to be identified with the talent on the reduced Attic scale which bad been formally recognized by the Romans (see above). ) Silver coins. The ‘piece of money’ of the Authorized Version in Matthew 17:27 is the stater, the ‘pieces of Silver’ in Luke 15:8 are drachms, while the ‘pieces of Silver’ in Matthew 26:15 are probably staters, and are discussed under that heading. Drachm (δραχμή, 1618450472_5 Authorized Version and Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 piece of Silver). —This is the name of the unit of the Greek system of Silver coinage, and, as such, might be applied to a great variety of coins front different mints and of different standards. The ‘ten pieces of Silver’ possessed by the woman thus amounted to eight shillings. ]'>[7] reads σριἁκοντα στατῆρας; and though this reading is rejected by critical editors, it probably embodies a correct paraphrase of the ἀργύρια (Authorized Version and Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 ‘pieces of Silver’) of

This gold must all have been imported, as there are no mines in Palestine; and indeed we are told that it came, with other produce as well as Silver, from the mysterious Ophir and Tarshish; and that the enterprise was a joint venture of Solomon and the king of Tyre, the latter probably supplying the vessels, the former the produce which was exchanged for these goods, unless indeed the gold was procured by raiding.

Yet the notice of prices in the time of Solomon ( 1 Kings 10:29 ) suggests that Silver was by no means valueless, whatever weight we assign to the shekel of the time. While it is clear that all Silver in use must have come in by importation, the notices in the OT of transactions in which it would probably be employed are too scanty to permit of even a guess as to the amount in use; and though it is likely that (as in Eastern countries to this day) foreign coins were largely in circulation, there is little authority for this supposition
