    The widow’s money is a small coin of the Hasmonean period. This coin was in circulation in Jesus time and was used as the small change during Second temple. This is the type of coin that Jesus would’ve been referring to in his parable of the Widow’s Offering.

    And Jesus 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.” (Gospel of Luke 21:1-4)
