WIDOW'S MITE FROM THE TIME OF CHRIST 

Typical ancient Judean Widow's MitesThe story of the Widow's Mite can be found in the Bible in Mark 12:41-44.  For Jesus, the widow's small offering of her only two small coins was worth far more than the large contributions of the rich who gave only a small portion of what they had.  The mite, also known as the lepton, was the smallest denomination struck in ancient Judea.  The coin was first struck during the reign of Alexander Janeaus, and continued to be used during the time of Christ.  Most display an ancient anchor on one side and a wheel on the other, though other designs were used as well. Minters were paid by how many pieces they produced, not how well they produced them.  As a result the coins tend to be crude or off center, and every coin is different.   This historic coin of the Bible is over 2000 years old and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

NEWTHE RISE OF CHRISTIANITY IN ANCIENT ROME - A SET OF 12 BRONZE COINS

Set of 12 Ancient Roman coins in folder - The Rise of Christianity
In the 300 years between the death of Jesus and the death of Constantine the Great, Christianity went from being the nascent belief system of a dozen disciples to the official religion of the mighty Roman Empire.  This remarkable collection tells the story in coins.  Gallienus issued the Edict of Toleration, making Christianity legal in the Empire for the first time.  Claudius II Gothicus reversed this decision, persecuting Christians in the realm.  Constantine I was the first Christian emperor.  he and Licinius I issued the Edict of Milan in 313, decreeing that all Christians in Rome must be treated benevolently.  Constantine's sons, Constaintine II, Constantinus II and Constans maintained their father's policy.  Only Julian II, called the Aspotate by the Church, attempted to revert to paganism, but by then it was too late.  By the time Valentinian, Valens and Gratian, Rome was officially Christian; indeed, those three emperors converted barbarians to Christianity.  This set of 12 ancient Roman bronze coins includes coins of Gallienus (253-258), Claudius II Gothicus (268-270), Constantine the Great (307-337), Licinius I (308-324), Constantine II (337-340), Constantinus II (337-361), Constans (337-350),  Donstantintius Gallus (351-34), Julian II the Apostate (360-364), Valentian I the Great (364-378), Valens (364-378) and Gratian (367-383).  After the Fourth Century, Rome was often ruled by more than one emperor at the same time.    The obverse of each coin shows the portrait of the emperor at the time the coins were minted.  The reverse shows pictures and phrases depicting current concerns, history and mythology.  The coins grade Very Good or better.  They are guaranteed genuine and are packaged in an attractive descriptive folder.

GIFTS OF THE WISE MEN

Gifts of the Wisemen: Gold, Frankencense and Myrrh
Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh were the three gifts the Wise Men (also called The Three Kings or Magi) brought from the East to celebrate the birth of the baby Jesus (Matthew 2:11).  Though many people have heard of Frankincense and Myrrh and have even sung about them in Christmas carols, few have actually seen, let alone owned, these precious substances.  Frankincense and Myrrh are aromatic resins extracted from rare trees.  Frankincense, an almost white resin, was one of the most prized and costly substances in the ancient world, worth more than its weight in gold.  It was used in medicines and incense (Exodus 30:34).  Myrrh, a dark resin, was widely used in perfumes, incense and embalming.   Gold has been long valued due to its beauty and resistance to corrosion.  It has been used in jewelry and commerce for thousands of years. We have housed this historic set  in an attractive 4 by 6 inch (10cm. x 15cm.) wooden box imported from India (box may be different than pictured).  Included are natural gold flakes or nuggets as well as actual Frankincense and Myrrh resin imported from the Middle East.  A descriptive card explains the significance of the items.  This set makes an excellent teaching aid or a precious and long remembered gift.  This is your chance to own or give "the original Christmas gifts".   We have only a very limited number of these boxes available.  Please order early to avoid disappointment.
