I picked up this ancient coin today at my local coin dealership and since I do not collect ancients I have no clue where or when it is from.

A Happy Easter And Passover

Ancient Coins | Mike 271

I just want to take a minute to wish everyone on the site a very Happy Easter and Passover epically safe one. These dates and celebrations influenced many coins. There is a book coins from the Bible. So you see all parts of world history influences coinage. I have seen some of these coins there beautiful. Many have special meaning to us. As St. John Paul the Second called the Jewish People our older brothers that could not be a truer statement. We are all brothers and sisters. So enjoy the days with your family and let's all get along. Thanks. Mike.
