Biblical Widow's Mite 14K Gold and Sterling Silver Pendant | Artifact #6717

“And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:”  Mark 12:43

Our top grade Widow's Mite has survived over 2,000 years to speak to us today - set in an heirloom pendant...

Please Note: This is an authentic Biblical Widow's Mite from the Holy Land, and you will receive the exact pendant in the photographs and description.

FOR PENDANT SIZE SEE COIN DETAILS BELOW

Every treasure coin setting we create is hand-crafted by us in the USA to perfectly fit each coin - we NEVER damage/clip a coin to insert it in a mass-produced setting.

Neither rich nor influential, we don’t even know the name of the Widow who appears in Jesus’ powerful teaching on giving and the state of the heart.  Although we will never know her name, her story echoes through time. For she gave everything she had - two of the humble bronze coins we now call "Mites" - a term coined centuries later to designate a coin of little value.

Your Widow's Mite Pendant

Robert's Notes: Beautiful quality coin, considering its age. Almost uncirculated. Sweet, visible star and partial anchor. Ancient Hebrew visible around the edges.

Luxury width bezel.

It is amazing the know that these coins are usually found where Jesus walked and performed his ministry. If Mary had forgotten to get something at the market, this is the type of coin she would have given a young Jesus to go back and purchase it.

The tiny bronze Widow’s Mite coins were not Roman, but true Judean coins that were minted during the short period of Jewish history between the Old and New Testaments, when Israel was a self-governing nation. Called a Prutah, they were minted under the King and High Priest Alexander Jannaeus, the first of these coins were minted about 78 BC, and perhaps a few decades after, however they were in circulation at the time of Christ, and are remembered for the key part they played in Jesus’ teaching related to tithing and givingIt was this tiny coin that was actively traded in the markets that Jesus and the disciples passed, and would have been used by the common folk who flocked to listen to the parables of Jesus.

These coins were of so little value, that striking them was done hastily, and, most of the time, much of the design didn't make it on the small coins. 

On one side is the eight-rayed star, signifying heaven, and on the other, an anchor - a power symbol of the day.

A symbol of faith, hope and selflessness, the humble Widow's Mite has become one of the most loved and valued coins of all time.
