Judas was an apostle of Jesus Christ.


After betraying Jesus for the thirty pieces of silver which led to Christ's arrest and condemnation, Judas was filled with remorse and tried to return the money to the priests who had paid him. When they refused to take the blood money, Judas threw the coins into the temple in Jerusalem and hanged himself.

The Judas Silver, as the cursed coins became known, were researched almost two thousand years later by an unknown archaeologist in the 1930s.
