This coin was minted between 103-76 B.C. under king Alexander Jannaeus, one of the last Jewish kings before the Roman annexation of Judaea. Made from an ancient bronze alloy and with a rich patina, built up over the centuries. Partially lifted to reveal the motif.
The coin depicts an 8-ray star. The other side shows an anchor within a circle. Very fine condition.

These coins were the smallest coins circulated in Jerusalem, and were still in use at the time of Jesus.
In the New Testament, Mark 12:41-44, Jesus tells the rich men of the temple that though they gave of their wealth, the widow gave her only two mites – a true gift of the heart.

The coin is safely held by a handmade four prong sterling silver setting. Bail opening is 5mm.

This coin is an authentic ancient artifact, as all of my coins are and was purchased from a trusted and reliable source. You will receive a Certificate of Authenticity.
