Minting Coins was a a very good way to transmit important news around the Roman Empire. This way Roman subjects would use them for trade and the news would circulate around the Roman world. The Roman victory over The kingdom of Judea and specifically Jerusalem seems to be a very important event for the Romans.

we can see that This coin as seen here was minted already in the year 69 C.E. even before Jerusalem was completely subdued (captured) Later series of 'Judea Capta' were coined by the emperor Vespasian in the year 70 C.E. (even before Masada fell and marked the official end of the first Jewish revolt) Titus, and Domitian.

Even Herod Agrippa II, that reigned under the Roman Rule coined is own series of Judea Capta. These coined were minted in gold, silver and bronze.

Most of the coins were minted in Rome in honor of the Roman victory over Judea. On the face of the coin is the bust of the Roman emperor Vespasian and on its obverse is "Judea Capta" sitting in mourning symbolized by a women whom represents the defeated nation, and a Judean palm tree symbolizing the kingdom of Judea, since it was such a common tree and formed apart of its landscapes (till it was extinct in the Byzantine period). To the left is a Roman soldier armed with a lance, sphere or a Roman Sword (Gladius)
