During the week of Chanuka kids are given some coins as a gift.
Chanuka gelt (Yiddish for money) became a tradition in 17th century Poland.
Nowadays little pouches of foil-covered chocolate "coins" are welcome, too.
These coins are on display at the Jewish Art Museum in Hechal Shlomo in Jerusalem.
Fourteen gold coins were in the pomegranate jar discovered in the stones of the Holy Ark of the 6th century synagogue Dir Aziz in the Golan.
Sure wish I could give this little treasure to my grandkids as Chanuka gelt!
