Why add this Double Struck Judaea Prutah of Alexander Jannaeus to your ancient coin collection?
The last independent Kingdom of Judaea was ruled by king and high priest Alexander Jannaeus, from 103-76 BC. During his reign, three different types of Bronze Prutah were minted. One was Jewish themed, featuring symbols of the Holy Temple with Hebrew inscriptions. Another was clearly Hellenistic (Greek) in style, depicting an anchor with text confirming Jannaeus as King rather than High Priest. This coin is an example of the third, more mysterious style, featuring the Jewish type intentionally struck over the Greek style coin.
