A treasury is either

  • A government department related to finance and taxation.
  • A place or Schatzkammer where currency or precious items (gold, diamonds, etc.) is/are kept.

The head of a treasury is typically known as a treasurer. This position may not necessarily have the final control over the actions of the treasury, particularly if they are not an elected representative.

The adjective for a treasury is normally "treasurial". The adjective "tresorial" can also be used, but this normally means pertaining to a treasurer.
