Widow’s Mite – Jewish Bronze Coin
Ca. 135 BC – 29 AD
From archeological excavations, we know that the vast majority of bronze coins circulating in Jerusalem in the lifetime of Jesus were the Jewish leptons of prutot, minted from the time of the Maccabean kings, until Pontius Pilate.
Any small, Jewish, bronze coin struck before the crucifixion can be legitimately called a “widow’s mite.”
Certificate of Authenticity included.
