The Lowest value coin in Jesus time – The Widow’s Mite.
The most famous first century coin mentioned twice by Jesus Christ in the New Testament.
- Widow’s Mite coin.
“And (Jesus) 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’”
This passage tells of a generous offering to God by a poor widow. Although the amount that she gave was far less than what others gave, Jesus counted her offering as the greatest because she gave all that she had.
