ALEXANDER JANNAEUS HISTORICALLY SIGNIFICENT COIN A MUST FOR ALL ANCIENT COIN COLLECTORS

 

The word “mite” is the 1611 King James Version translation for this famous coin.  The original Greek used the word lepton (λεπτον). These leptons were the smallest and lowest denomination coin that circulated in Jerusalem during Christ’s lifetime. These coins were thin and carelessly and crudely struck, usually off center and in small flans. Legends are generally unreadable. Actual size of these coins were about the size of a pencil eraser. The value of the coins were based on combined weight with other coins and not on an individual coin value. They are believed to be the coins that referred to in the Biblical story of the poor widow.
