Wealth today is often invisible , as we cannot see inside another person's bank account.Some people like to show their wealth discreetly  while others choose to wear as jewellery or decoration.
Headdresses like this one ,from Palestine include silver coins as part of their ornamentation.

Being small money can easily be concealed for safekeeping ,However ,people often like to give an indication of their wealth for example by keeping money out of sight ,but in an expensive wallet.Money can also be used as adornment,and since coins and banknotes often feature elaborate and artistic designs,they are ideal for incorporation into jewellery.
