Roman Empire, AR denarius "tribute penny," Tiberius,14-37 AD, Lugdunum mint.. RIC I 30; BMCRE 48; BN 33; RSC 16a. 3.53 grams. TI CAESA[R DIVI] AVG F AVGVSTVS, laureate head right / PONTIF MAXIM, Livia (as Pax) seated right, holding olive-branch and long vertical sceptre; ornate legs to chair. The tribute penny was the coin that was shown to Jesus when he made his famous speech "Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's." The phrase comes from the King James Version of the gospel account: Jesus is asked, "Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?" (Mark 12:14) and he replies, "bring me a penny, that I may see it" (Mark 12:15). VF.
