From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    The Authorized Version understood the word 'adarkonim (1 Chr.
    29:7; Ezra 8:27), and the similar word darkomnim (Ezra 2:69;
    Neh. 7:70), as equivalent to the Greek silver coin the drachma.
    But the Revised Version rightly regards it as the Greek
    dareikos, a Persian gold coin (the daric) of the value of about
    1 pound, 2s., which was first struck by Darius, the son of
    Hystaspes, and was current in Western Asia long after the fall
    of the Persian empire. (See DARIC.)
