This coin is not a replica, but an actual bronze coin, certified genuine, minted in the Holy Land over 2000 years ago during the reign of King Alexander Jannaeus in the century preceding the birth of Jesus. What makes these coins of great historical and religious importance is that twice in the Bible, Jesus is quoted as telling the story of the poor widow who gave all that she had which was just two mites. The coin enclosed is identical to the type of coin she would have had...

ROMAN EMPEROR VALERIAN I (AD 253-260)

Upon taking the throne, Valerian headed east, to take on the dreaded Persians and their nefarious ruler, Shapur I. He won Syrian territory until plague struck his army before the Battle of Edessa, which he lost to the Persians. He arranged a meeting with Shapur, to negotiate terms of a truce, but his rival violated the spirit of the meeting by taking him captive. He remained in the hands of the Persians from 260 until his death five years later...

Hungary was among the last kingdoms in Central Europe to adopt Christianity, resisting conversion until the reign of St. Stephen in 1038 CE. But the Magyars took to the new religion with great zeal, as evidenced by these silver denar coins featuring the image of the Madonna and child.

Known as “Maddonnenmunzen”, to differentiate them from earlier medieval Hungarian “Shield Coins”, the new design heralded the beginning of the Renaissance in Hungary. Unlike earlier European medieval coins, this coin type was one of the first to feature a full date, although it is commonly obscured or off the flan due to the crude manufacturing methods. When visible, some show dates below the Madonna, while others (before 1570) are dated above the Coat of Arms...

The lost wonders of the ancient world, the famed hanging Gardens, were not located in Babylon, as originally thought, but at Susa, in the Biblical realm of Elam-or so some numismatists now believe. The answer to the riddle lies in the strange markings on this ancient Elmymais coin.

The Hanging Gardens of Babylon is the only one of the original Seven Wonders of the World whose location has not been discovered by archeologists—possibly because they’ve been looking in the wrong place...

John took part in the uprising against the Seleucid Empire, as described in the Biblical books of...

His ministry was seen as a threat by the religious authorities in the city where he lived and preached, and those in power persecuted him and his followers. He was widely viewed as the last in a series of prophets, preaching the ultimate Word of God.

A two-thousand-year-old coin issued in the Holy Land by the infamous Herod I.

Crowned King of the Jews by the Roman Senate, Herod ruled from 40 BC until his disease-ridden death 36 years later. A prodigiou...

Valens became the Eastern Roman Emperor in 364 CE. Although a fine administrator, Valens was not an effective military man, leading a series of unsuccessful campaigns against the Goths. In 378, at Hadrianopolis, he stubbornly refused to wait for reinforcements led by his nephew Gratian, hoping not to share the glory of victory. Instead, Valens’ attacking army was slaughtered, and he perished.

Gratian ascended to the throne of the Western Empire in 375 CE. An able military leader in his ...
