Gold pendant with a "Widow's Mite" coin which was mentioned in the Gospel of Luke 21.
This Bronze Jewish coin was used in the Second Temple period and discovered Jerusalem Material: Bronze
Ruler: Alexander Jannaeus Date: 95-76 B.C.
This small bronze coin was made famous in Jesus' parable of the Widow's Offering (Mark 12, Luke 21).
Then one poor widow came and threw in two mites, which make a quadrans. So He called His disciples to Himself and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury; for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, her whole livelihood.” (Mark 12: 42-44)
In this story, the widow gives an offering of only two small coins, worth only a fraction of a penny, yet Jesus valued her offering greater than all the others because she gave everything she had.
This coin was first minted by Alexander Jannaeus (76-103 B.C.), and was mass-produced in Jerusalem. The front contains a star design with the paleo-Hebrew characters of Jehonatan between the rays.
The back contains an anchor as a symbol of naval strength after conquering the philistine coastal cities with the Greek inscription reading, "King Alexander."
Although this coin is small and unimpressive, it is a constant reminder of Jesus' message that God values the heart and sacrifice of a person, not the outward works of people.
