HISTORY ON BRONZE COINS

The bronze coins referred to, are the Roman assarion (one cent), and quadrants (1/4 of a cent), the Jewish perutah or lepton, which was worthy only 1/8 of a cent, was the coin of the “widow’s mite.”

It should be remembered that the coin values here given are only approximate, and that the purchasing power of money was much greater in ancient times than today.

Bronze coins were in use during the leadership of the romans. Financial conflicts influenced the economy as well, back than and caused changes of the coin material and money producing.

In the time of Jesus the coins current in Israel were Roman, Greek, Syrian and Jewish. However, the Jews were allowed to issue coins only in bronze.

Large sums were expressed in talents and mnas. The talent equaled about $2,000 in US currency. The mina was 1/60 of a talent, or about $35.00.

The silver coins mentioned in the NT are: The Syrian stater (about 50 cents), the Roman denarius (about 20 cents), the Greek drachma, equivalent to the denarius. The stater was accepted as equal to the Jewish shekel, 1/50 of a mina (about 65 cents), which was the Temple tax for two persons. The denarius was the usual day’s wage for a laborer in the field, and it was the coin of the tax to the Emperor.

Dinor was used to pay the temple tax. This coin had the head of Hercules on it – a false god as far as Jesus was concerned

, and perhaps one reason he flew into a rage that traffic in these coins was going on in the holiest of Jewish places. This outburst also perha

ps sealed his fate with the Sanhedrin, as he was threatening their financial support system.
