Why purchase this Greek Billon Denier Coin of the Crusades?

The Crusades were religious wars fought between the Christians and Muslims between 1096 and 1487. Historical research has shown no evidence of coinage stuck by Crusaders on their way to Jerusalem. The coinage the Crusaders carried was struck in their own regions within Western Europe, with the common obverse image of a cross, the symbol worn on their garments to identify them as Crusaders. This Billon Denier was hand struck in Greece, 1250-1310, measuring approximately 18-22 mm in diameter, with a weight of about 0.8 grams.

Design of the Crusades Denier

The obverse features a circular frame around a cross pattee at the center, the emblem of the Crusades. The image is surrounded by the name of the issuer and title inscribed.

A castle is depicted on the reverse, in a stylized manner, featuring three vertical towers. Inscription encircling the image declares the region of issue.
