Æ (Bronze) Prutah. Referred to in the New Testament, Mark 12:41-44 "... cast in all she had...". Average size 1gm 11mm ~ about 3/8-1/2in. in diameter These are very small coins--hence "mite" ~ For comparison a U.S. Dime is 17.9mm. Anchor; Greek inscription, ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ ΑΛΕΞΑΝΔΡΟY (of King Alexander). The anchor was adopted from the Seleukid Kingdom, who used it to symbolize their naval strength / Star of 8 rays surrounded by diadem. The star represents heaven. typical off-center strike on irregular shaped flan--Widow's mite coins were haphazardly minted with little care to center strike or even fully strike, often struck with worn dies; ie, the striking dies start to wear after many strikes in minting resulting in a coin that appears to be worn but not the result of wear in circulation/handling. A couple of the coins have holes--but they have not been "holed" but result from the casting of planchets--often in strips rather than single planchets--before coin struck with the design. These were a very small denomination crudely struck which only highlights the sacrifice of the Widow's mite passage. Fair to Fine condition ~ one side could be rather nice other crudely struck or even flat. Ref. Hendin 469. Meshorer 8. Alexander Jannaeus was a capable ruler and general who often was in conflict with the Pharisees, the son of John Hyrcanus, inherited the throne from his brother Aristobulus I, and appears to have married his brother's widow, Shlomtzion or "Shelomit", also known as Salome Alexandra, according to the Biblical law of Yibum ("levirate marriage"), although Josephus is inexplicit on that point. His likely full Hebrew name was Jonathan; he may have been the High Priest Jonathan, rather than his great-uncle of the same name, who established the Masada fortress. Under the name King Yannai, he appears as a wicked tyrant in the Talmud, reflecting his conflict with the Pharisee party. He is among the more colorful historical figures, despite being little known outside specialized history. He and his widow (who became queen regnant after his death) had substantial impact on the subsequent development of Judaism. Jannaeus expanded the Hasmonean Kingdom and established the city of Gamla in 81 BC as the capital for what is now the Golan Heights. ~ . ~ . ~ . ~ . ~ Own one of the most famous Coins of Western Civilization and Biblical History.

The Widow's Mite is referred to in the Bible in three passages -- AV Mk 12:41-44 is the most famous is the parable of the poor widow and the unselfish gift of her last two mites -- "... cast in all she had...". Mark 12:41-44 41 Now Jesus sat opposite the treasury and saw how the people put money into the treasury. And many who were rich put in much. 42 Then one poor widow came and threw in two mites which make a quadrans. 43 So He called His disciples to Himself and said to them, "Assuredly, I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury; 44 for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, her whole livelihood." Luke 21:1-4 1 And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury. 2 And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two. 3 And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all: 4 For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had. Luke 12:58-59 58 When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison. 59 I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite ~ . ~ . ~ . ~ . ~ Guaranteed to be Authentic.
