While many people are familiar with the Gospel story of the window's mites, it is not well-known that the Roman governors of Judaea issued their own mites.
This bronze prutah was minted by Pontius Pilate, the governor of Judaea between 26AD and 36AD. He is best known today as the man who ordered the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Due to his connection to the Crucifixion, these coins that he minted in Jerusalem during the lifetime of Jesus are in far more demand than those of other Roman governors of Judaea, or even those of King Herod.
Pontius Pilate had prutahs struck between the years 29AD and 31AD, at the same time Jesus was spreading His Ministry throughout Galilee. Your prutah will be one of three versions that were issued during this time. Each coin is authenticated as genuine, and will arrive in a protective folder describing the role Pilate played in the Gospels.
