Left radical is 'shell/money/valuable item' (貝). Right radical is a Non-General Use character meaning 'formerly', used here phonetically to express 'send/give'. Thus, 'to send or give a valuable item'. Henshall suggests taking the right radical as 'away' (八), 'field' (田), and 'day' (日), and as a mnemonic: 'One day give away field and money.'
