From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:

     The Authorized Version understood the word 'adarkonim (1 Chr.
     29:7; Ezra 8:27), and the similar word darkomnim (Ezra 2:69;
     Neh. 7:70), as equivalent to the Greek silver coin the drachma.
     But the Revised Version rightly regards it as the Greek
     dareikos, a Persian gold coin (the daric) of the value of about
     1 pound, 2s., which was first struck by Darius, the son of
     Hystaspes, and was current in Western Asia long after the fall
     of the Persian empire. (See {DARIC}.)
