Section 1: Cleansing the Temple
p3: Jews coined their own silver money: The “Jewish money” proper, coined during the years of Hasmonean dynasty (164 – 35 B.C.) should not be confused with the Tyrian type half-shekels required for the Temple tax and other offerings (cf. Mishna Bek.8.7) and probably minted in Jerusalem after the mint in Tyre was closed down by Rome in 19 B.C. The Hasmonean money (so far only bronze coins have been found) never contained images of gods or people or animals, like the Tyrian silver shekels and half-shekels (see the picture).
Jerusalem half-shekel of Tyrian type, 45 A.D. On the obverse we see Melkhart, god of the Phoenicians, corresponding to the Greek Hercules. The reverse shows the eagle and the letters “KP”. The meaning of “KP” is unknown, but this abbreviation is only present in the coins minted outside Tyre.
