Description:
John Hyrcanus I. (134 - 104 BC). AE double prutah (16.1 mm, 4 gm, 12h). Paleo-Hebrew (Yehohanan the High Priest and Head of the Council of the Jews); double cornucopia, horns face in same direction, adorned with ribbons / Helmet with decorative crest facing r., border of dots. Hendin 1136. TJC 207, H1. AJC I 150, R1 (misattributed to Hyrcanus II). Samuels 37 (this coin). Extremely rare. Fine.

This rare coin is the only Hasmonean issue that was not struck on a planchet with beveled edges and for this reason it is suggested that it was not struck at the Jerusalem mint, Samaria is often mentioned as a possibility. Anecdotal evidence of find spots suggests a possible mint in the Galilee.
