At the end of the 2nd century B.C.E. the family of the Hasmoneans started genuine Jewish coinage with a limited number of motifs and an abundance of dies. This book deals with the complex scientific situation of the corpora of Hasmonean coins. The different systems of numbering and the varying chronological arrangements of the Hasmonean rulers are presented in several tables and concordances.In this work the four main publications of the late Ya'akov Meshorer are evaluated, their changing systematical and chronological orders challenged. The "Unrecorded Hasmonean Coins" of J. Ch. Kaufman, which doubled the number of well documented Hasmonean coins, are added. A future layout of a critical, transparent and useful corpus of Hasmonean coins is still a desideratum.
