 Coins with the Four Species

 

One also encounters the four species theme on the coins minted by Bar Kochba.

 

The picture displays two silver coins in the value of a Sela with the theme of lulavim (palm branches

 

They bear the inscriptions:

 The coin on the right 'leherut yerushalayim' (to the freedom of Jerusalem)

The coin on the left shana bet leherut yisrael (the second year of Israel's freedom)

 

(The picture is taken from Yigael Yadin's book 'Bar Kochba' published by Weidenfeld Nicholson, Jerusalem, in conjunction with Maariv publishing house)
