Treasure is a general term for the collection of items that increase your Money score when picked up.
There are many kinds of treasure that can be found lying around on the ground, buried inside rock, dropped by certain enemies upon defeat, or - on the rare occasion of a Golden Scarab - flying around in Dark Levels.

Treasure is collected simply by touching it. It does not have to be picked up deliberately like other items.

As a basic rule, the value of each item increases by 25% of its original value in each area, with the exception of special items such as the Golden Idol.
Note that multiple items can overlap each other, appear as one, but yield much more.
