Why purchase this Greek Billon Denier of the Crusades struck 1250-1310?

Deniers struck during the period of the Crusades were struck from Billon, an alloy mostly bronze in content coated with a silver wash. The coins were produced by a variety of Mints in the Western European region as a means of payment to the crusading Knights. Obverse designs typically held the image of a cross, symbolic of the insignia worn on the Knight's garments and the emblem of the Crusades. This Denier coin was struck in Greece, 1250-1310. Hand struck, diameter measurement of the coin ranges from 18-22 mm.

Impressive Design of the Crusader Denier

On the obverse, the name and title of the issuing Duke surrounds the encircled depiction of a cross with flared arms, known as a cross pattee, the symbol worn by the Crusading armies.

A simplified illustration of a castle entrance adorns the reverse, ornamented with three towers. Legend describes name of the issuing region.
