What a thrill to own a 2,000 year old bronze hand struck coin that reflects an important passage from the Book of Mark. The widow offered her last two coins and Jesus said, "She gave the greatest contribution because she gave all she had." Not much time or attention were given while minting these coins since they were the lowest denomination coin minted during the time of Jesus. It took 400 of these small bronze coins to equal a silver shekel. Recovered from the Holy Lands emphasizes how meaningful these historical coins truly are.
