Relive the Lesson of the Widow’s Mite

The Widow’s Mite is perhaps the most fascinating of the New Testament coins. The “mite” or “pruta” was the smallest of the bronze coins of the Jews and are frequently mentioned in the New Testament manuscripts.  The most famous text from Mark 12:41-44 reads:

Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything – all she had to live on.”

Struck in the Holy Land and circulated during the time Jesus and the Apostles trod its dusty paths, this widow's mite is more than 2,000 years old!  In fact, every coin in this offer could have actually passed through the hands of the Apostles and the first Christians. That's why widow’s mites from the time of Jesus and the Apostles are one of the most sought-after ancient treasures of all time. Not only do collectors covet them, but the world's most important museums display them in their permanent collections. Their significance cannot be underestimated.

We worked very hard to bring them to you! Each widow's mite was individually hand struck by artisans over twenty centuries ag – it’s remarkable that any have survived. Not only can you own these museum quality widow's mites, you get them at an amazing price. Each comes beautifully displayed in a vinyl flip holder along with a storycard and a certificate of authenticity.
