Widows Mite

Which ancient hebrew coin has a palm tree on it?

I have this coin that I was told was a "widow's mite" and I know that it is an ancient hebrew coin. But now I'm not sure if it's a widows mite!! It has a palm tree on one side and something that looks like a pineapple on the other side. The inscription (on the palm tree side) is:

yod
daleth
waw

sin (or shin) I can't quite make it out.
lamed
mem

From left to right as the hebrew language goes.

On the side with the pineapple:

sin
nun
lamed
heth
lamed
yod (???)
sin
daleth
aleph

That's it. Can anyone shed some light on this mysterious coin? I'm learning hebrew, but I don't know enough yet to understand what this inscription says. Please help me!

I agree it is SUPPOSED to be a Bar Kochba Shekel. You may have the coin, but you should check to see if it is authentic or not. If you can read all of those letters, I doubt it is genuine. Ancient Hebrew coins seem to be the most forged of all Ancient Coins. I have seen many of these coins, and have only seen authentic examples in dealer trays. Check the edge of the coin for a seam, or telltale file marks to remove the seam. I am pretty sure they are there. I think a cereal maker made many of these in the sixties and had them as a cereal prize. If the coin is real and in good enough shape you can read all of those letters, it is worth hundreds or thousands of dollars.

Probably the foremost expert in this field is David Hendin. His website is:
