Tyrian shekel

Archaeologists found a coin used during the Second Temple period at the Jewish people’s holiest site in Jerusalem.

This week, Israeli archaeologists announced their discovery of an ultra-rare “Tyrian shekel.”

This coin was used around 2,000 years ago to make the half-shekel donation required of Jews so that they could bring sacrifices in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, Judaism’s holiest site.

This Tyrian shekel was discovered in Jerusalem’s Old City, within about a mile of the Temple Mount.
