    The Widow's Mite Coin Set

    Jesus sat down across from the place where people put their temple offerings. He watched the crowd putting their money into the offering boxes. Many rich people threw large amounts into them. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins. They were worth much less than a penny. Jesus asked his disciples to come to Him. He said, “What I’m about to tell you is true. That poor widow has put more into the offering box than all the others. They all gave a lot because they are rich. But she gave even though she is poor. She put in everything she had. She gave all she had to live on.” — Mark 12:41-44


    The small coins donated by the poor woman Jesus observed are often referred to as Widow's Mites. Cast in bronze and minted between 106 and 73 BC, the mite, or Bronze Prutah, was in common use at the time of Jesus and was the smallest denomination coin of it's time. Surviving more than 2000 years, this authentic coin is paired here with a larger coindepicting the inspiring story of the Widow's sacrifice. Plated in .999 Pure Silver and replicating the Widow's Mite in 24k gold accents, this exclusive work brings history to life.
