Tyrian shekalim were first minted apparently in ca. 127 BCE, shortly after Hyrcanus I
gained power in ca. 132 BCE. It is unclear when Tyrian coins began to be used commonly as the Temple Tax, but it was likely during the Hasmonean period, perhaps under Hyrcanus I. Keep in mind that it does not appear that Tyrian coins were required by fiat.

See for example Schafer, The History of the Jews in Antiquity (preview) or Regev, The Hasmoneans: Ideology, Archaeology, Identity (preview).
