Denomination : Silver tetradrachm (Shekel).

Mint : Many believe that the mint was moved from Tyre to Jerusalem some time just before 12 BC, and if this is true that would make this a Jerusalem mint coin.  I personally believe that if the mint were moved, it would have been moved to Caesarea.

Date : Year mark PNS = 156, which is AD 30 to 31, right about the time many people believe the crusifixion occured (which could have actually been any time between AD 27 and 34). 

Size : 20.3 x 23.3 mm.  Weight : 14.39 grams.

Reference : Sear Greek - 5920 variety.

Grade : gVF.  All shekels of Tyre struck in the period between about AD 26 and 34 are of this crude style, and the date marks are poorly engrave do can be difficult to read.  On this specimen the PN is clear but the S (dogma) is very crude.  This is actually a pretty nice specimen for this period.

Obverse : Head of Melqarth right.

Reverse : Eagle standing left on a ship's prow, with a club and the date mark RNS in the left field (the S is actually a greek letter Dogma), with KR in the right field with a Greek letter monogram below that, with TUROU IERAS KAI ASULOU around (some of the letters are off the flan).
