Jerusalem Temple Tax Coin, Jerusalem, Tyre Shekel (AR Tetradrachm / Shekel). Dated Year 81 ΠΑ 46/45BC. 13.4 g, 26mm.

Laureate bust of Melkart right / Eagle standing left on prow, KP and monogram to right.
Excellent condition and detail with super clear images and high contrast.

One half shekel was required as annual tax for a male adult due to Temple, so a full shekel was the tax for two men. This would be the same coin as found in the fish's mouth in Mark 17:27 that was enough to pay for the Temple tax for both Jesus and Peter. Judas was paid 30 shekels or half shekels to betray Jesus Christ.
