This is a stock photo and the coin received may not be identical to the one pictured. Herod Agrippa I (AD 37-44) was the ruler of the Roman province of Judaea. A confederate of the deranged Roman Emperor Caligula-who believed himself to be the Jewish Messiah-Agrippa vigorously persecuted followers of Jesus, imprisoning the Apostle Peter. According to Acts, Agrippa was struck down by God for accepting the praise of sycophants, and his body was eaten worms.
