    Hello friends, here is the famous Tribute Penny spoken of in the Gospels, where Jesus is shown a denarius and answers the Pharisees, "Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's, but render unto God what is God's."

    This is a very high grade example with an excellent strike, pristine surfaces and only a bit of circulation wear on the high points of the laurel wreath. Examples in similar grade sell for around $700 retail, see this page at vcoins. At CNG, coins in similar grades have sold between $700 and $800 before the buyers fees, see this page.

    I have this specimen for sale from a consignor for $600, which includes insured shipping within the US. Please PM me if interested. I offer a lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
