! These coins have connections to the Bible. Tyrian shekels had a relatively high silver content (94% or more vs Roman silver that was about 80% pure), and were the only coins accepted for the temple tax. Money changers made a business of exchanging other currencies for the shekel. Tax collectors once asked Peter in Capernaum if his teacher paid the two-drachma (half shekel) tax. After commenting on the question, Christ miraculously provided sufficient means, a stater (a four-drachma Greek coin, a full shekel), for the tax to be paid for Him and Peter (Matthew 17:24-27). Here’s the dynamic duo: PHOENICIA, Tyre. AR Shekel (13.29 g, 25 mm, 1h). Dated CY 113 = 14/13 BC. (Struck in the decade before Christ's birth.)
