Specs:  This coin was given as an annual gift by every Jewish male to the Temple. During the Revolt the coin was used in circulation. On one side of the coin one can see three pomegranates and in Ancient Hebrew script the words "Holy Jerusalem." On the other side of the coin the words "Half Shekel" are inscribed and a chalice with the Hebrew letter "Aleph" above it marks the first year of the rebellion. The coin was discovered at the Temple Mount Sifting Operation at Emek Tzurim on the Mount of Olives and dates to the years 66/67 CE.  Please note your ring size during checkout.
