An authentic Widow’s Mite in a 14k gold Jerusalem cross frame
The Widow’s Mite is a small bronze prutah of Alexander Jannaeus (76-103 B.C.) that was used during the time of Jesus as the small change of the day. It is illustrated in the parable of the Widow’s Offering in Luke 21.
The coin of the widow’s mite is a small bronze Hasmonean coin minted under Alexander Jannaeus (76-103 B.C.) with a star on one side and an anchor on the other. This coin was reused during the time of Jesus as the small change, and is illustrated in Jesus’ parable of the widow’s offering.
Olive wood box is made in Bethlehem.
Makes a great gift to illustrate Jesus’ parable with the two small coins.
