A little bit about the history behind these coins

The first Jewish-Roman War (66–70), sometimes called The Great Revolt (Hebrew: המרד הגדול‎, ha-Mered Ha-Gadol), was the first of three major rebellions by the Jews of the Iudaea Province (Judea Province), against the Roman Empire (the second was the Kitos War in 115–117 CE; the third was Bar Kokhba's revolt, 132–135)CE. It began in the year 66 initially because of Greek and Jewish religious tensions but grew with anti-taxation protests and attacks upon Roman citizens. It ended when legions under Titus besieged and destroyed the centre of rebel resistance in Jerusalem, and defeated the remaining Jewish strongholds.

These ancient coins struck by the Jewish revolting in Jerusalem, which ended in the sacking and destruction of the Second Temple, although could be considered to only have ended with Masada. The profits from looting the temple was used to build the Flavian Amphitheater, known as the Colosseum. Outside it, still stands what is known as the Arch of Titus which shows the parade procession of Titus coming into Rome with the Jewish captives holding objects from the great temple. Very important, historically-significant, ancient Jewish coin. Meshorer, an authority on Jewish coins, writes that the amphoras "on the Jewish issues may symbolize the sacred libations of wine made in the Temple. The vessels depicted on the coins of the revolt are not copies of the Roman amphoras; they are Jewish and of different style than the classical Greco-Roman models represented on the coinage of Valerius Gratus.
