Hoards of coins were the usual way to store wealth in the days before banks. Those found by archaeologists were presumably hidden away or buried in times of trouble but then never collected by their owner. The denarius first appeared as the standard silver coin around 211 BCE and in Republican Roman times was almost pure silver.
Denarii remained popular well into 3rd century CE but by then their silver content was consistently below 50%.
