The silver drachmas of the powerful Bactrian ruler Azes II were in circulation during the life of Christ. With the Greek script "King of Kings" and an Indian legend, they are among the first bilingualcoins that were ever minted. It is possible that the great Azes himself was one of the three Magi who came to Bethlehem in order to pay homage to baby Jesus.
King Azes II was the beloved ruler ofBactria from 35 B.C. to 5 A.D. Referred to as Gaspar, or Caspar, by religious scholars, it is believed that Azes II was one of the Magi who gazed upon the Baby Jesus and offered gifts to the Christ Child. Gaspar's journey to Bethlehem was financed by these silver coins, or drachmas. It is likely he carried them to the Holy Land and used them to purchase the gifts of frankincense and myrrh. It is possible that Jesus himself carried one of these coins in His hands.
These authentic silver coins are in "Fine condition and come with a Certificate of Authenticity. Most of these coins were issuedbefore the birth of Jesus, but some had to have been minted on the very day of Christ's birth and all were in circulation when Jesus lived.
