The coins minted by the Jews during the First Revolt are a display of emancipation from Rome as they were minted not only from bronze but also from silver which was the emperor's privilege. Most of them date from the year 1 to the year 5 which corresponds to the duration of the revolt. The coins bear various inscriptions in the old Hebrew intended to reassure Jews in their fight for freedom. The symbols used on the coins are exclusively Jewish. They include the lulav (a frond consisting of myrtle palm branches and wicker) etrog (fruit of the hadar tree) cup amphora three pomegranates a vine leaf and a palm tree.
