Two-Fold Small Silver Genuine “Widow’s Mite” Ring / Pendant.
It can also be used as a pendant with a chain because of its shape.
The coin is in great condition. This is a small bronze prutah of the Hasmonean period (Alexander Jannaeus – 103-76 B.C.) that was used in Jesus’ time as the small change. This coin illustrates the parable of the widow’s offering in Luke 21.
And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites. So He said, “Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had.” (Luke 21:1-4)
A great gift with biblical significance!
