Own a genuine New Testament coin

by thoughtfulconservative

Human Events says I can.

This “Widow’s Mite” coin is a genuine bronze coin issued by King Alexander Jannaeus, the Great Grand Nephew of Judah Macabee and the Jewish leader of the Holy Land from 103-76 B.C. It is this type of coin that circulated in the Holy Land during Jesus’ life.

Are there really this many of these kinds of coins still around?

  1. Yes, there are plenty of them left. Bronze lasts a long time. In the former Roman lands, treasure hunters routinely find caches of coins. Hiding a bagful must’ve been an alternative to banking.

  2. Amazing that they’ve been around this long.
