Description

In 66 AD the tiny Jewish nation of Judaea rebelled against the oppressive might of the Roman Empire. One of the very first acts of the Jewish people was to begin the production of their first precious metal coinage, a defiant statement of independence. These incredibly poignant and wondrously tactile pieces of silver serve as an unmistakable proclamation of the Jewish desire for sovereignty and for the preservation of their identity.
The high purity silver coins were struck for just five years, each dated with the year of the rebellion, in this case year one. They were overstruck on the Tyrian shekels taken from the Temple treasury itself, replacing the old nationalistic Tyrian symbols and legends, “Tyre the Holy and the Inviolable” with the new legends, ‘Shekel of Israel’ ‘Jerusalem the Holy’.
More than just a coin, this artefact pays testimony to the struggle of the Jewish people to preserve their religion and culture in the face of great adversity.
Design:
Obverse side
‘Shekel of Israel’ in Palaeo-Hebrew, around a ritual chalice
Reverse side
‘Jerusalem the Holy’ in Palaeo-Hebrew, around a branch with three pomegranates

A perfect choice for Numismatists, Historians, Military Veterans, Collectors.
