Widow's Mite

This small bronze coin was the smallest coin in Jewish currency, issued ca 103-76BC. It is best known because of what Jesus Christ said about it. When a widow gave one as a gift for charity, a merchant made fun of her. Jesus said (Mark 12:41-44 and Luke 21:1), ‘This poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast in the treasury’. In other words, the Mite or Prutah meant more to that woman than the gold given by the rich man. We have a nice selection of these small, well circulated, and important bronze coins. Great as a gift as most people have heard of the fabled Widow’s Mite. Don’t expect them to be anything but a small crudely struck bronze coin, but do expect to have something that is rather important in history as well as in life.

Nepal, Fantastic 10 Coin Mint Set Unc

In Nepal, there are almost no coins being used, because they cost more to strike than their face value. A friend put together a collection of ten (10) different coins of Nepal and all in Uncirculated condition. It would be very difficult to put such a diverse collection together today, especially in Uncirculated condition. As coins are expensive to strike, they print low-value banknotes that everyone uses. We were only allocated 99 sets and when they are gone, our supply and supplier are out of stock.
