The 'Eternal Word' as John calls Jesus in his Gospel (1:1-3) became a man in circa 5 BC and died circa 31 AD. He was the first of the firstborn resurrected and age is no longe…r relevant to Him as such (time is a physical measurement).
No doubt you realize that Jesus did have brothers and sisters. Of course, since he had no human father, they would actually be his half-brothers and sisters, but related… to him nonetheless, and of course, he had cousins as well, John the Baptist being the most well-known. Unfortunately, most likely all records of the birth of Jesus and other family members would have been destroyed when the Romans sacked Jerusalem in the year 70. For that reason, we cannot trace Jesus family tree and have no idea who may be related to him today. That is also why we do not know the actual date of Jesus' birth.
The value of thirty silver coins was the price of a ordinary slave.
1921 Morgan dollars are fairly common among collectors, so your coin would be worth about $14 or so.

1862 is a relatively scarce date for Liberty Seated dollars. Numismedia lists the following approximate retail values as of 03/2010: Very worn condition - $600 Moderately …worn - $840 Slightly worn - $950 Almost no wear - $2,082 Uncirculated - $3,190 to $73,130 depending on quality But you'd need to have it authenticated by a professional - there are loads of counterfeit dollars floating around these days.

A 'piece of silver' was most likely the Roman denarius. This was the going rate of pay for a day's work for an unskilled worker (such as a labourer, farmer, shepherd etc). The…refore 30 pieces of silver would be approximately a month's salary for an unskilled worker. If the minimum wage is around £7 an hour ($9) and based on a 40-hour week, in modern terms this would be £280 per week ($360) or aproximately £1120 ($1440). Thus, the amount Judas accepted to betray jesus was hardly a king's ransom!
It is a small amount , but some say that it was the price of a ordinary slave.
The 'piece of silver' was called a denarius by the Romans and it was the usual pay for a day of work by a common laborer. Today, a day laborer (non-union and not contracted) m…akes around $10 per hour, $80 per day. So the 30 pieces of silver could be compared to $2,400. One interesting tidbit is the mention of this bounty shortly after Judas became angry at the wastage of a bottle of fragrant oil on Jesus. He said that the oil should have been sold for 300 denarii. The writer then ascribes a motive to Judas, saying that he wanted the money for himself and not for the poor. It is worth noting that the 30 pieces of silver would have been the tithe on income of 300 pieces of silver.

8-5-11>>> This is a American Silver Eagle 1 ounce bullion coin. The value is tied to the spot price of silver at time of sale. Right now it's $39.06 per ounce. This price is a… little less than you could buy it for and a little more than you could sell it for. But it gives you an idea of value. NOTE: The spot price of silver and other precious metals changes by the minute when the market is open. So the value of this coin will go up and down.
