An enduring symbol of faith and sacrifice, the legend of the Widow's Mite comes straight from the pages of the Bible. This authentic bronze coin actually circulated during the Biblical time of the New Testament, 100 B.C. - 60 A.D. The smallest of all Roman coins, its Biblical name comes from the story in Mark 12:41-44 when Jesus praised a poor widow for giving all she had - her last two coins - while rich townspeople gave only a small portion of their wealth. The Widow's Mite coin along with the Mustard Seed Charm is the focus of the goldtone Saturn style double chain 18 and 16-inch necklace with a lobster claw clasp and a 3-inch extender. A single mustard seed, the age-old symbol of faith and hope, along with the inspirational Biblical verse from Matthew 17:20.
