Our two millennium old Widow’s Mites have been certified by the expert graders over at NGC to be 100% authentic Bronze coins that were used during Biblical times as currency!

Just What Exactly IS a Widow’s Mite?

The Widow’s Mite was a small bronze coin in circulation at the time of Jesus Christ in Jewish currency (similar to our Lincoln Cent). The Widow’s Mite actually went by the denomination “Bronze Lepton” and was issued between 135 B.C. and 29 A.D. The Lepton was produced in a similar fashion to today’s coins, with the key difference being that each individual piece is a hand-made legal tender coin!

The Most Famous Coin in the Bible

The Widow’s Mite is famous in large part to its numerous appearances in the Bible, with its most notable being the following parable taken from Mark 12: 41-44:

"And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites. So He said, “Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had.”

While the exact wording depends on which translation and edition of the Bible you use, the details remain the same: The poor woman had given all she had, a mere two Mites, and thus the “Widow’s Mite” was born.

An Ancient Piece of Biblical History at a Value!

These coins are truly something special, so it is no surprise our competitors are asking an arm-and-a-leg for these iconic pieces when they can be found ... one competitor wants over $65 for one of these ancient pieces in FINE condition!
