Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g694 Greek: argurion


properly, "a piece of silver," denotes

(a) "silver," e.g., Act 3:6;

(b) a "silver coin," often in the plural, "pieces of silver," e.g., Mat 26:15; so Mat 28:12, where the meaning is "many, (hikanos) pieces of silver;"

(c) "money;" it has this meaning in Mat 25:18, 27; 28:15; Mar 14:11; Luk 9:3; 19:15, 23; 22:5; Act 8:20 (here the RV has "silver").

Note: In Act 7:16, for the AV, "(a sum of) money," the RV has "(a price in) silver."

2 Strong's Number: g5536 Greek: chrema


lit., "a thing that one uses" (akin to chraomai, "to use"), hence,

(a) "wealth, riches," Mar 10:23, 24; Luk 18:24;

(b) "money," Act 4:37, singular number, "a sum of money;" plural in 8:18, 20; 24:26.

3 Strong's Number: g5475 Greek: chalkos


"copper," is used, by metonymy, of "copper coin," translated "money," in Mar 6:8; 12:41.

4 Strong's Number: g2772 Greek: kerma


primarily "a slice" (akin to keiro, "to cut short"), hence, "a small coin, change," is used in the plural in Jhn 2:15, "the changers' money," probably considerable heaps of small coins.

5 Strong's Number: g3546 Greek: nomisma


primarily "that which is established by custom" (nomos, "a custom, law"), hence, "the current coin of a state, currency," is found in Mat 22:19, "(tribute) money." In the Sept., Neh 7:71.

Note: In Mat 17:27, AV, stater ("a coin," estimated at a little over three shillings, equivalent to four drachmae, the temple-tax for two persons), is translated "piece of money" (RV, "shekel").
