Widow's Mite

Authentic Widow's Mite Coins
The mite is the smallest of all Roman coins (close to the size of a dime).

Denomination: Prutah (Bronze) Date: 103 – 76 BCE

The Widow’s Mite was minted in the holy land over 2000 years ago during the reign of King Alexander Jannaeus in the century preceding the birth of Jesus. What makes these coins of great historical and religious importance is that twice in the bible, Jesus is quoted telling the story of the poor widow who gave all that she had which was just two mites.

These coins are an actual part of the historical record - a unique, ancient artifact that was handled and used in the market stalls by villagers, desert traders, holy men and Roman soldiers alike in everyday transactions.

Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury, and many that were rich cast in much. And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing. And he called into him his disciples, and sayeth unto them, "Verify I say onto you, this poor widow hath cast more in than all they which have cast into the treasury; for all that she had, even all her living.” -Mark, 12:41
