Production of silver coins at the Jerusalem Temple appears to have dropped sharply in the fourth year, when the Jewish War against Rome entered its terminal phase and supplies of precious metal dried up. While the number of recorded specimens for the first three years number in the hundreds, only 40 shekels are known from Year 4.
