This genuine Ancient Jewish coin has been set in
a modern 18karat gold ring.
The glory of the Maccabees is evoked by this
elegant coin, issued by one of the great rulers of
the dynasty. On one side is the image of an
anchor, symbolizing the wealth and power of
trade; on the other is an eight-rayed star,
evoking the divine protection of the heavens for
the king. The persons who first held this coin
centuries ago were witness to history in the
making. To hold it today is to set the imagination
traveling on exotic journeys to the past.
