  • Pontius Pilate Bronze Prutahs NGC Fine

    Rarer than a typical Widow's Mite, these are issued under Pontius Pilate and are far more difficult to obtain than a typical Prutah.

Most widow's mites are heavily worn due to extensive circulation and their exposure to elements over the past two thousand years, however, we bought a small group of the finest ones from a recent find. Coin pictured may not be the exact coin you receive, however, it's certainly indicative of the quality you can expect. Each coin dates back around 2,000 years and comes sealed in an NGC holder certified in Fine condition. Learn More
