Item Description

Experience the joys of learning about ancient Jewish coins from the time of the Second Temple. These nine beginner coins are authentic ancient Jewish coins from between 2,100 and 2,300 years ago.

They were found in Israel and legally exported to the United States. The donor of this lot acquired them from David Hendin, the world's leading expert on ancient Jewish coins.

The oldest of the coins was minted in present-day Akko in approximately 170 BCE, right before the Maccabees rose up to win Jewish Independence. The newest is from approximately 62 AD, and was believed to be the last coin minted before the Jewish Revolt four years later (66–73 CE).

The winning bidder will receive a written description of each coin and information on its historical context.

Special Instructions

Note: photo may not reflect the actual size.

The coins may be picked up at A Taste of Limmud NY on November 1st. Otherwise, we will add an additional charge of $10 and ship them to you via priority mail (within the Continental US).

By bidding on this item, you agree to be bound by the Limmud NY 2017 Online Auction Rules and Guidelines, which can be viewed here.
