Product Description
What is a more well-known story than the Three Wise Men who visited Baby Jesus in the manger in Bethlehem nearly 2,000 years ago? This Bronze Unit coin was issued by Azes II of Bactria, who is believed to be the King who sent Gasper, one of the Three Wise Men, to visit baby Jesus. Gasper carried these very coins with him on the journey to Bethlehem!
The obverse of this ancient coin depicts a lion while the reverse depicts a Brahma bull. Indo-Scythian coinage is generally quite realistic, and they continue the Indo-Greek tradition by using the Greek language on the obverse and the Kharoshthi language on the reverse. Certified Authentic by NGC, this piece has been holdered with a special Coins of the Bible Label. This coin is an incredible reminder of the miracle of Christ's birth!
