Roman Jewish Bronze Coin Jewish Revolt Against Rome
Directly from Jerusalem, historically important Roman "Jewish" bronze coin of Bar Kochba, dated from, 66 - 70 AD

"The first Jewish revolt against Rome" also know by the MASADA COIN.

Throughout the revolution that lasted from AD 66 to 70, a large number of purely jewish coins were made to supply the needs of war, as offerings for the temple, and as political or inspirational statements. These were all special coins that were made with religious acceptable designs. The most common of these was a bronze PRUTAH that displayed a grape leaf on one side and an amphora, or jar, on the other.

The legend on these coins reads "FOR THE FREEDOM OF ZION" and a reference to the year of issue, either year two or three of the revolution

The coin is nicely set on 18 Karat gold handmade pendant

Obverse: Amphora with wide rim, year two in Paleo-Hebrew
Reverse: Grape leaf with a small branch "For the Freedom of Zion" in Paleo-Hebrew

Found in Jerusalem, Israel
