Well interesting, in both Dutch and German the word 'koffer' exists, meaning 'maleta'/ 'suitcase'

It exists as ''coffer in English too but with a similar meaning as mentioned here

1.a box or chest, esp. one for valuables.2.coffers, a treasury; funds: The coffers of the organization were rapidly filled by the contributions.
So is this word still used frequently in Spanish or is it somewhat oldfashioned perhaps? Would you see it in stories/ fairytales or e.g. as in treasure chests with pirate stories?

Or would it be used daily as in a type of big box as well?

With the morrow, there shall be
One more wraith among your number"
