Why add this Greek Billon Denier circulated by the Knights of the Crusades to your collection?

The religious wars fought from 1096-1487 known as the Crusades were a series of intermittent conflicts battled between the Christians and Muslims to establish, or maintain, control over the Holy Lands, and in turn the significant religious sites located in the region. A variety of coinage was produced to pay the Crusading Knights, including this Billon Denier, struck in Greece, 1250-1310. The coin weighs approximately 0.8 grams, with a diameter ranging between 18-22 mm.

Imagery Representing the Crusades

The emblem associated with the Crusades is located on the obverse of the coin. The symbol is encircled by a legend defining the title and name of the issuer.

The reverse features a stylized castle with three towers, known as the castle tournois, surrounded by the name of the issuing region.
