The Thirty pieces of silver
Thirty pieces of silver was the price for which Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus, according to the Gospel of Matthew 26:15, Before the Last Supper, Judas went to the chief priests and agreed to hand over Jesus in exchange for 30 silver coins. Afterwards, he was filled with remorse and returned the money to the chief priests before hanging himself. The chief priests decide that they cannot put it into the temple treasury, and so with it they buy the Potter's Field., the Old Testament also mentions 30 pieces of silver, in the books of Exodus and Zechariah.
