Description
The last of the Hasmonean dynasty that ruled ancient Israel for almost a century, Mattathias Antigonus was a remarkable personality. Though his brief reign was filled with political struggle, his coinage focuses on images of peace and abundance. On this bronze coin, an inscription reading “Mattathias The High Priest And The Hever Of The Jews” surrounds a cornucopia representing wealth and plenty. Set in a ring of bright gold, it evokes a pivotal era in history. To wear this splendid jewel today is to link ourselves to the lives of the men and women who first held this coin centuries ago. - (FJ.3351)
