A brief annotation
The biblical story of Ruth is one of loving kindness, loyalty and love for the people of Israel, a story that has touched the hearts of millions of people. Starting with a family tragedy, it ends in happiness with the very beginning of a royal lineage. 

The scene on the coin show Ruth came to glean in the field of Boaz, who was one of the respected people of Bethlehem and a relative of Naomi. Boaz was impressed with this modest woman and her exceptional kindness, and married her. Thus began the royal dynasty that led to the birth of King David and, according to Jewish tradition, will eventually lead to the birth of the Messiah.
