In circulation from at least the 18th century, it lent its name to the position of Keeper of Treasure and Dragots.[1] Aristotle Twelvetrees served this position at the time.

The term "dragot" is possibly formed by the concatenation of the terms "drachma / dragma" (a form of the Greek word for coin "drachma") and "ingot" (a block of oblong metal).
