Give a genuine bronze coin struck from 9 B.C. – A.D. 40 during Jesus's lifetime. The obverse depicts the Nabatean ruler Aretas IV, while the reverse bears an inscription in Aramaic – the language of Jesus. These bronze antiquities were struck in the Nabatean capital city of Petra, which is now Jordan's most famous tourist attraction.
Aretas IV and his son Malichus could have traveled the short distance to Bethlehem to visit the infant Jesus, and the son's name may have even been preserved as Melchior – one of the 3 wise men! What an exciting ancient artifact, and a perfect holiday gift. But supplies are limited, so choose from two attractive grades today!
