***American Historic Society COA reads: “American Historic Society Limited Edition #7060 Certificate of Authenticity Widow’s Mite. This Certificate of Authenticity attests to the fact that the coin in this collection is an authentic Widow’s Mite which actually circulated during Jesus’ lifetime.

‘And Jesus set 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.’ - Mark 12:41-42

These authentic coins, found by archaeologists in ruins in what was once ancient Judea, symbolize the richness and true meaning of charity.

We are sure you will treasure your collection and display it with pride.”

***The Widow’s Mite narrative reads: “It is said that Jesus told his disciples about the Widow’s Mite, ‘This woman has given more than all of the rich men. They have plenty of money and they gave only a small amount to the temple treasury. This woman had only two small coins and she gave all she had.’ The Widow’s Mite is the term used in the King James version of the Bible referring to the smallest coin in use between 100 BC and 60 AD. Also known as a lepton, these coins were typically struck in bronze. It is interesting to note that during this time, coins with heathen designs such as human faces or figures, were forbidden. This explains the fact that the coins usually depict plant or palm tree designs.”

***The image of Jesus Christ in profile contains this proverb: “And Jesus set 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.” - Mark 12:41-42
