Arutz-7 has an interesting article on a Second Temple period half shekel coin being found (see pictures below).

Traditionally the half-shekel was given during the month of Adar (that is when we are right now).

Personally I think it is a bit strange that they used a coin with an Avodah Zarah image on it.

There must be more to the story.

(I got my Purim post in after all)
