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, with amazing details even after 2000 years.
The coin depicts an 8-ray star. The other side shows an anchor within a circle, the symbol of heaven. Almost perfect round shape with a coin diameter of 16mm.
Safely held by a four prong setting, made from sterling silver. The bail will accommodate chains up to 4mm in diameter.

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.
These coins were the smallest coins circulated in Jerusalem, and were still in use at the time of Jesus.
