****

The denarius of Tiberius is commonly referred to as the “Tribute Penny” and is the coin referenced by Jesus in Mark 12:17 when he says “render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s”.

It came to be called a penny rather than a denarius in the 1611 King James’ version of the Bible primarily due to the fact that the penny was the standard denomination of the time, therefore making the term penny much more understandable to contemporary readers.
