Half Shekel Coin Necklace
This necklace is a replica of the coins that were annually gifted in the Temple to cover the costs of public sacrifices. On one side of the coin, artisans have designed a branch with three pomegranates and an inscription in ancient Hebrew, “Holy Jerusalem” to emulate the coins found in the archeological excavations conducted in the City of David and its surrounding areas. The coin dates to the end of the First Temple period and was found during the sifting of archaeological rubble that originated from the Temple Mount.
