‘Free Zion’ coin minted 1,967 years ago unveiled

Long before the “Free Palestine" slogan became popular – in fact about 1,967 years before – a “Free Zion” coin was minted and circulated in Jerusalem.

Culture and Sport Minister Miri Regev unveiled that coin at Sunday’s cabinet as part of a presentation she gave about preparations for next year’s celebration of 50 years since the reunification of Jerusalem. The coin was uncovered during an excavation about a month ago of a recently uncovered road in Jerusalem that will be made public during Hanukka.
