THE MONETARY VALUE OF THE GOLD, FRANKINCENSE, AND MYRRH:
"There's no way to be sure how large the gift was but a small chest would have been an appropraite gift for a messiah. At that estimation and todays market the one gift of gold alone would be worth at least a half million dollars. If it was gold coin it could've been more. The other two gifts were more valuable than gold THEN. While there's no way to know how much, it's a good guess they were of comparable value. So, I would guess that the three gifts combined would easily have been worth well over a million bucks. A couple million even."
