These are replicas of the famed widow's mite coins, known in the Holy Land in the time of Jesus as lepton. At the time of the Bible, there was hardly anyone poorer or more destitute than a poor man's widow. For such a person to give all that she had to God, was a great sacrifice and also shows great trust that God would provide for her. The sacrifices of the poor though small mean more to God than the large donations of the rich.
"As Jesus looked up, he saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in her two mites. "Truly I tell you," he said, "this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on." (Luke 21:1-4)
There are 10 coins included in a small organza gift bag. Also included are the verses from Luke 21:1-4 as a reference. These widow mites are replicas of Roman-Jewish Bronze Coin Of King Herod Agrippa, 44 AD.
