The smallest coin used during the life of Jesus was the prutah coin minted by the Maccabee dynasty from 140-40 BC. The Prutah coin was referenced in the famous proverb "The Widow's Mite" and this is a genuine example of one of these coins from biblical times. The coin has been authenticated, graded and encapsulated by NGC, and has acheived the grade of VF or "Very Fine."
"And there came a poor widow, and she put in two mites. And he said to them, "Amen, this poor widow has put more than all those who have put in the treasury. They all have put in out of their abundance, but she out of her want has put in all she has to live on. "Mark 12:42.
