This is the coin referred to in the New Testament as the "Widow�s Mite". In Mark 12:41-44 it is written:

"Andhe sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the multitude puttingmoney into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. And a poorwidow came, and put in two copper coins, which make a penny. And hecalled his disciples to him and said to them, �Amen I say to you,thispoor widow has put in more than all the others who are contributing tothe treasury. For they have all contributed out of their abundance. Butshe,out of her poverty has put in everything she had, her whole living".
