These are two accurate replicas of what is known as the Widow’s Mite. They are hand made at Nazareth Village, and a constant reminder that God honors our best.
“Now Jesus sat opposite the [temple] treasury and saw how the people put money into the treasury. And many who were rich put in much. Then one poor widow came and threw in two mites* [Greek: Leptons], which make a quadrans.
