An authentic Widow’s Mite in an intricate 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 Jerusalem cross was originally a crusader symbol which was later adopted as the symbol of Christianity in Jerusalem. Whenever this symbol is used today, it always represents Jerusalem.

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)
