Ancient Byzantine 'Portrait of Christ' Coins. 969 - 1081 ADSome of the first coin issues ever to depict Jesus ChristThese coins were minted at a time surrounding the end of the first millennium (or the millenium to the ancients), and it was "known" far and wide that the world was about to end. People started to look to God in a serious way and this resulted in their culture reflecting this devotion. Their coins carried this symbolism, front and back, carriers of the image and message of God. Legend has it that on the eve of December 31, 999 AD, everyone packed into churches to spend the night as they thought there was a chance of Jesus returning.Acquired London 1960s-1980s.Fine condition.Dark Brown Patina.Rare and not to be missed.
