He Saw Also a Certain Poor Widow Putting in Two Mites...
Widow’s Mites, also known as Leptons or Pruta, were the smallest known denomination in ancient Jewish currency. These were regular coins from the Maccabees to the time of Herod, but they became famous worldwide with their mention in the New Testament. The word Mite was not what they were called in Jerusalem at the time of Jesus, but the name was included later in some of the earlier English versions of The Bible.
Because this coin is a reproduction of historical coinage, we have added text between the spokes of the wheel that roughly translates to, "reproduction" in ancient Hebrew.
This Pair of Widow's Mites is struck from solid copper. Each coin measures 1 cm in diameter, and weighs about 1.4 grams. Coin artwork by Tom Maringer.
