The Most Invaluable Coin Ever Found in Israel
In accordance with VOA News, Israeli archaeologists dug out the heaviest and most invaluable coin ever found in these places. They concluded that the coin refers to Egypt; in particular, it was issued at the times when this country was ruled by Ptolemy the 4-th. It was about 2200 years ago and the coin then represented an enormous sum, even by the standards of those times. Scientists say that the monetary value of this single coin was equal to semi-annual salary of the average person lived during the Ptolemy ruling. The modern equivalent of the coin would be 10 thousand dollars, so the release of this coin was probably timed to coincide with some symbolic event or was geared as a gift for some notable person.
