Of the myriad of holy relics in Christendom, none as sacrosanct as the so called True Cross – the piece of wood on which Jesus Christ was crucified. While some historians doubt its authenticity, the True Cross did exist. It was discovered in Jerusalem by St. Helena 300 years after the Crucifixion, changed hands several times through the centuries, and vanished from recorded history after the Second Crusade, when it was seized by great Muslim warrior Saladin. This remarkable collection features coins of the five historical figures who held the True Cross.

1. Pontius Pilate (Bronze Prutah): the roman prefect who presided over the trial of Jesus. He condemned Jesus to die on the cross. (Weight: 1.5-2.5g, Diameter: 14-17mm)


2. Roman Empress Helena (Bronze Nummus): mother of Constantine the Great, made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. As Augusta Imperatrix, she was charged with locating lost relics from the time of Jesus. Helena found the remains of three crosses, Helena took the relics to the bedside of a deathly ill woman and the third cross immediately healed the woman. (Weight: 1-2.5g, Diameter: 13.5-18mm)


3. Sassanian Emperor Khusrau II (Silver Dirham): the last King of Persia before the Muslim conquest of Iran – sacked the city and made off with the True Cross. (Weight: 2.5-4g, Diameter: 26-33mm)


4. Byzantine Emperor Heraclius (Bronze 12 Nummi): Fourteen years following Emperor Khusrau II, recovered the lost artifact and returned it to its rightful place in Jerusalem. (Weight: 3-5g, Diameter: 15-18mm)


5. Ayyubid Dynasty (Bronze Fals): Saladin the first sultan of Egypt and Syria and the founder of the Ayyubid dynasty, expelled the Christians from Jerusalem, winning the city after the Battle of Hattin. He removed the True Cross to Damascus, where it presumably remains to this day waiting to be discovered. (Weight: 1.5-5g, Diameter: 17-23mm)
