I think Oldhoopster has it right about it being cast. It appears to be a copy of a silver shekel from Judea, AD 66-70.

I am also surprised to learn that it is legal to remove artifacts from tombs in Jordan.

 it is a halve shekel 

And It is not legal in jordan to remove artifacts,  but the whole tomb was found in an uninhabited place and by chance.

I dont think it is a cast copy ,  how I can actually be sure about it .

Why was the picture removed? 

I was wondering the same thing. I wish people would leave them up to help others identify copies. Thats really useful. I often read through very old threads and it has helped answer questions Ive had quite often. Its just a waste of space now that the pictures and op has been deleted.
