Bar Kochba Revolt Coins
Color photo of Bar Kokhba Revolt coins from the time of the second Jewish revolt against Rome.
These coins are among the thousands of coins that were issued under Bar Kokhba discovered in the land of Israel. From these coins we know the geographical boundaries of the administration of Bar Kokhba during that time period (132-135 A.D). Many of these coins were struck directly over Roman coinage, which was an act of defiance. Some coins bear Bar Kokhba’s name, and also his title, “Prince of Israel” along with the year of the revolt against Rome. Some of the popular phrases mentioned are:
“for the freedom of Jerusalem”
“for the redemption of Israel”
Some of the symbols include: The only known likeness of the façade of the Temple in Jerusalem, the Four Species, and trumpets. These symbols revealed the messianic nature of the revolt, and a heartfelt desire for the restoration of Jerusalem and her Temple.
