Render Unto Caesar. The ‘Tribute Penny’ is one of only a handful of coins which appear in the Bible. The coin Jesus used may have been one of these: a silver denarius of the Emperor Tiberius (AD 14-37). His fierce portrait appears on the obverse, and a depiction of either his mother, Livia, or the goddess Pax, on the reverse.
