Ancient Shekel Sterling Silver Cuff Links
A shekel adapted from a coin dating back to 70 CE, in the collection of The Jewish Museum in New York City.
- Diameter: 3/4"
In 66 CE, the Jews rebelled against Roman rule and began to mint their own coins, called shekels, as a sign of their independence. The imagery and inscriptions are entirely Jewish in nature: a chalice with an ancient Hebrew inscription denoting the date and denomination; and a branch with pomegranates, one of the Seven Species of Israel, surrounded by the inscription, 'Holy Jerusalem'.
