Why purchase this Coin of the Crusades Billon Denier?

The four hundred year period of the Crusades was launched in 1096 by Pope Urban II, calling upon Knights of the regions of Western Europe to recapture the Holy Land from Muslim control. Coinage struck to fund the multiple military campaigns symbolically held the image of a cross, a symbol worn on the crusading Knights, which eventually became the emblem of the Crusades. This Billon Denier of the Crusades was stuck in Greece, 1250-1310.

Classic Symbolic Design Elements

The obverse depicts a cross pattee at the center, surrounded by a circular frame and the inscribed name of the issuer. The cross pattee is a common heraldic cross design found on many artifacts from the Medieval period of history, an emblem associated with the Crusaders.

Featured on the reverse is a stylized castle, adorned with three distinctive towers, bordered by an inscription naming the region of issue.
