SOME OF THE SMALLER COINS COULD BE THE HIGHLY COLLECTABE WIDOWS MITES. WIDOWS MITES ARE A HIGHLY COLLECTABE COIN BECAUSE THEY ARE MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE.

The Widows Mite Biblical coin refers to the story of the poor widow whom Jesus Christ commended in the Temple for having given all she had, two mites. And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two Mites… 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: for all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all she had. THERE IS ALSO MENTION OF THE WIDOWS MITE IN. There are 2 different Widows Mites. Lepton Widows Mite 103-76 BC (Widows Mite lepton as mentioned in scriptures) minted under Alexander Jannaeus. Prutah Widows Mite 103-76 BC Often currently referred to as the Widows Mite but was a larger coin with similar markings to the lepton minted under Alexander Jannaeus. These coins were minted by the Maccabees in Jerusalem and used in Jerusalem during the life of Jesus and the disciples. It was the penny of that time period and is famously mentioned in the New Testament. There are no two coins of this kind alike! They were minted by hand over 2000 years ago and were in circulation for many years, causing many Pruta and Lepton coins that are found today to be in poor condition. DIRTY ANCIENT ROMAN COINS.
