Why add this 1250-1310 Greece Billon Denier of the Crusades to your collection?

There were nine major Crusades that took place over the course of nearly four hundred years, from 1096 to 1487. The wars were fought between Christians and Muslims over control of the Holy Land. In order to pay the crusading Knights, a vast array of coinage was struck, commonly depicting a cross. Coins were typically struck from Billon, a metallic alloy which by the time of the Crusades was primarily bronze in content, with a light wash of silver. This Denier of the Crusades, struck in Greece, 1250-1310, weighs approximately 0.8 grams, measuring 18-22 mm in diameter.

Crusades Era Denier Imagery

The center of the obverse design features a cross pattee, the emblem commonly worn by the Crusaders. The image is framed by an inscription naming the ruling Duke and a circular border.

A stylized triple towered castle adorns the reverse, surrounded by an inscription naming the region of issue.
