Princeton U. acquires early gold coin with image of Christ

Through another person, I discovered this article (dated 2009 but still interesting) directly on a Princeton University website. I find it amazing that such coins still exist today and that numismatists have proven them to be authentic. I think the point is very clear -- no Emperor would place on his coinage any image of a false prophet. Nor would they put such a person on the front of the coin and relegate their own image to the back as a "servant of Christ's".

You'll find this secular account most interesting. Hopefully it will strengthen your own faith. If so, please pass this blog and its link on to others.

The history of coinage and religious icons helps us better understand the modern, "In God We Trust" phrase on American coins.
