The article examines the use of coins in jewelry. The research focuses on two hoards from Bessarabiaand analyzes their composition and chronology. Both hoards include silver and billon coins. One of them consists of coins and jewelry. There is a chronological gap between the hoard coins. The time of formation and concealment date back to different periods. Coins from one hoard were probably used as raw materials for jewelry. The second one was used for making up treasures or for raw materials. Judging by the hoards, coins in Bessarabia quickly went out of circulation. This was probably due to the use of coins for making jewelry. The question of the use of Byzantine coins in Christian worship remains open.
