Why add this Roman bronze Prutah of Judaea struck by Pontius Pilate to your collection?

Pontius Pilate was the 5th Roman Prefect of Judaea and governed from 26-36 A.D. History shows that Pilate was a terrible governor, and in 36 AD he was recalled to Rome by Tiberius, probably to replace him. However Tiberius died before Pilate could complete the journey and the new Emperor replaced Pilate with Antonius Felix. Between 6-66 A.D. in Judaea, Roman Prefects minted a small bronze coin called a Prutah to be used in daily commerce. These coins are actually dated, and were the last coins minted in Judaea during the life of Jesus!

Roman pagan imagery and Greek lettering on this coin

Imagery on Pilate's Prutah is rather simple. The reverse is Greek text showing a date within a wreath border. The text "LIZ" means year 17, or as we know it, 30/31 A.D. The text "LIH" means year 18, or 31/32 A.D. The image of a pagan Roman lituus with Greek inscription "Tiberius Caesar" is seen on the obverse. The Judaea Prutah were minted in a single denomination of copper, approximately 14mm in diameter, and weighed 2.05g.

Roman bronze coin from Biblical Judaea

The Ancient coin division of the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, a highly respected coin authentication company, graded this Roman Prutah Fine, and included the Bible verse Matthew 27:11 - 26 on the label. Coins in this grade will have sharp lettering and some detail in the deeply recessed areas. The highly circulated coin will have moderate to considerable wear.

If you're looking to add a coin from one of the most amazing periods in human history, this could be the one to purchase. Get it today from MCM!

A tremendous piece of history
Owning a coin touched by many, many people during the life and death of Christ is truly overwhelming. I wonder how many of those people heard Jesus speak and witnessed His death. Thank you MCM for for your prompt service and selection of this fine coin.
