Golden Age Hoard of Ancient Roman Silver Coins

Extremely Fine Antoninius Pius Denarii have been unearthed!

ModernCoinMart (MCM) is proud to bring you an exciting offering — silver denarii of legendary Roman Emperor Antoninius Pius, discovered in the Golden Age Hoard!

Antoninius Fulvus Pius, known as one of the ”Five Good Emperors,” reigned between A.D. 138 and 161. Regarded as a skilled administrator and builder, Rome undertook extensive construction during his reign, including aqueducts, bridges and roads throughout the empire. Despite these massive projects, he still managed to be one of the few Roman emperors to ever leave a large surplus in the public treasury for his successor.

Widow’s Mite Bronze Prutot

Used in a Biblical Lesson Taught by Jesus Christ Himself!

If you open a Bible to Mark 12:41-44, you will read the following account of a lesson taught by Jesus Christ, which involves a historic coin!

”Now Jesus sat opposite the treasury and saw how the people put money into the treasury. And many who were rich put in much. Then one poor widow came and threw in two mites. So He called His disciples to Himself and said to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury; for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had…”’

135-37 BC Widows Mite Bronze Prutah

NGC Graded Coins from the Bible!

“Then one poor widow came and threw in two mites, which make a quadrans. So He called His disciples to Himself and said to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury; for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, her whole livelihood.'”

This Biblical story of the widow and her mites spoken of in Mark 12:41-44 is approximately 2,000 years old, and the coins associated with it are even older! Known commonly as bronze “Prutot,” these were the smallest and most common denomination used during Jesus’ lifetime. Due to heavy usage, these coins have been handled by countless peoples all across Ancient Judaea. They could have even been handled by the first Christians, the Apostles, or Jesus himself!

One of the most fascinating coins mentioned in the New Testament, the Widow’s Mite Prutot are among the most sought-after ancient treasures today. Not only do collectors covet them, but the world’s most important museums display them in their permanent collections. Their significance cannot be underestimated. Despite their popularity, however, the vast majority of Widow’s Mite Prutot are in very poor condition, with very little detail still visible on their surface.

ModernCoinMart (MCM) is proud to present a fine group of these Prutot, graded by the Ancient Coin Division of the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation as high as Fine, Very Fine, and even Extremely Fine! Each slabbed coin has also been put into a special display box that includes the story of the Widow’s Mites. You can own these museum-quality Widow’s Mite Prutot, and you can purchase them at amazing prices!
