Why add this 1112-1148 France Toulouse Silver Alphonse Jourdain Denier to your collection?

This Denier is a fascinating choice by anyone who is intrigued with French or monetary history. The coin was a fractional issue of the Livre, the legal currency. Uniquely, though, there were no Livre coins issued for centuries. Instead, the Livre was used only in accounting. This Denier, French for Denarius, was valued at 1/240th of a Livre and if often thought of as the Penny of 12th century France.

  • This coin was valued at 1 denier.
  • This coin was struck in France sometime from 1112-1148.
  • Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this coin Mint State 62.

Issued by Alphonse Jourdain

This coin was issued by Alphonse Jourdain, who had a fascinating history. He took his name from the River Jordan, in which he was baptized, and after nominally holding other titles became the Count of Toulouse when his step-brother Bertrand died. The county was invited by Guillaume IX in 1114, but Jourdain reconquered it by 1123. Although Pope Callixtus II excommunicated him for expelling the monks of Saint-Gilles, Jourdain joined the Second Crusade. He died in Caesarea, some believe of poisoning.

Beautifully Preserved MS62

This coin earned a Mint State 62 grade from the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). Coins that receive that grade have about average strikes and show no traces of wear.
