Why buy this 1112-1148 Silver France Toulouse - Alphonse Jourdain Denier?

The currency of feudal France was the Livre. For centuries, though, Livre cons were not struck. Instead, Denier coins were struck, and the Livre was used exclusively for purposes of accounting. This Silver Denier gives you the chance to connect with this unique time in European monetary history.

  • This coin was issued by the County of Toulouse in feudal France.
  • It had a 1 Denier face value, which was 1/240th of a Livre.
  • This coin received a grade of Almost Uncirculated from the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).

From the Countship of Alphonse Jourdain

This coin comes from the countship of Alphonse Jourdain. While he nominally held other titles at younger ages, he became the Count of Toulouse upon the death of his step-brother Bertrand. Guillaume IX, the Duke of Aquitaine conquered the county in 1114, but Alphonse Jourdain took it back by 1123. The monks of Saint-Gilles supported his enemies, and he expelled them, an act for which he was excommunicated by Pope Callixtus II. In spite of the excommunication, he joined the Second Crusade. He died in Caesarea Maritima in 1148, possibly due to poisoning.

Beautifully Preserved AU55

The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this piece Almost Uncirculated 55. That grade means that the coin has slight wear on less than half of the design and retains full details.
