One of the most interesting challenges facing modern numismatics, is to develop a technique dating coin hoards, formed outside the existence of a developed money circulation. The fact that such regions showed significant increase in the period of use of payment signs. As a result, different time in circulation coins. It is possible that they could be appreciated for they contain precious metal. But, in this case, it is required to explain the reasons that motivate the owners to withdraw from circulation coins of different time for the compilation of treasures.

We decided to follow the situation on the example of Crimean late medieval treasures. Continuing previous studies have tried to attribute and date numismatic small complex consisting of different times of the Crimean Khanate coins. We believe that he dropped out of treatment in recent years, the existence of this state. The very same degree of this small treasure shows its distrust of the government to the owner of the last of the Crimean Khan Shahin Giray, whose coins are not present in the hoard.


Key words: Crimean Khanate, history, numismatics, currency, treasure.
