There are a couple of ways to solve this. The 30 pieces of Silver were probably denarii. The modern day purchasing power of a denarii is valued at about US$20. That would make the 30 pieces to value about $600.

The legend of the sand dollar is that Christ left the sand dollar as a symbol to help evangelists teach the faith. The five holes represent the five wounds Christ received while on the cross: four nail holes and the hole made by the Roman's spear. In the center of one side of the sand dollar, there is the Easter lily and in the middle of the lily is the star of Bethlehem. The Christmas poinsettia is on the other side which is a reminder of Christ's birth. If you break the sand dollar open, there are five white pieces of shell which look like doves. These are said to bring good will and peacE.
