YEHUD AR HALF GERAH, PERSIAN PERIOD

 
Hendin 1060, TJC 15, Very Fine+, 8.1mm, .36 gram, Struck Circa. 5th - 4th Century B.C.E.
 
Obverse: Lily

Reverse: Falcon with wings spread, head to right, (YHD at top right field off flan)

 
A SHARP, WELL CENTERED example of this RARE and historically significant Judaean Coin. Although the letters are basically off the flan due to flan tightness, the motifs are well centered and the crucial LILY well struck and beautiful! This was one of the earliest Jewish coins struck and perhaps the most iconic with the symbol of Jerusalem. (The modern Israeli shekel is modeled after this coin)
