    Great read written by David Hendin:bookworm::punch: Guy is the best when it comes to Jewish coinage. Thanks for sharing.
    And talk about eye candy, or at least fruit;). Every coin in that article is cherry:singing:
    I still need to get one of those that features the Macedonian helmet, like the one on the article.
    One of my favorite Jewish coin features the Macedonian shield:

    Nice feature by Hendin. Thanks for posting it, @cplradar!

    Here's a Judaean coin not included in the article that shows one of the fruits mentioned - along with some shields that @Ryro favors (albeit Roman, not Macedonian).

    Great reminder! This was my first Jewish coin. Not nearly as choice as yours. I bought it as my Britannicus (his portrait is just too expensive):
