Why purchase this Italian Silver Grosso struck in Renaissance Venice 1268-1413?

The Venetian Grosso was first introduced in Venice by Doge Enrico Dandolo in 1193. The Doge was the leader of the region, a term which evolved into the more common "Duke." This Grosso was struck in Venice, 1268-1413, from .985 fine silver with a weight of approximately 2.18 grams and a diameter measurement of 19-21 mm.

Beautiful Image Details

The obverse illustrates the standing figures of the patron of Venice, Saint Mark the Evangelist (right) and the issuing Doge. Saint Mark holds the gospel while offering a Gonfalone, a heraldic banner, to the Doge. Inscription names the Doge, along with "DVX," representing his title, and "S. M. VENETI," Saint Mark of Venice.

The image of Christ seated on a throne is depicted on the reverse with the inscription "IC IX." Reverse inscription of "TIBI LAVS 3 GLORIA" will appear on coins struck closer to 1400.
