Why add this 1542 Hungary Silver Denar in Story Vault Holder depicting Madonna and Child to your collection?

The mid-1400's introduction of the Hungarian Madonna and Child Silver Denar symbolized the onset of the Hungary's Renaissance movement. Struck with a minting date, this coin is notable for being one of the earliest dated European coins. Over the lifetime of the series, the date appeared in two positions on the coin. On coins struck before 1570, the date is located on the reverse, above the Coat of Arms, later issues are struck with the date inscribed below the Madonna's feet.

Madonna and Child in a Renaissance Style pose

The obverse image of the crowned Madonna depicts her in a seated position holding the infant Jesus, surrounded by the inscription "PATRONA VNGARIE" (the Patron Saint of Hungary). The field areas contain the letters "K" and "B," the Kremnica Mint's mark.

The Hungarian Royal Coat of Arms, a four-part shield, adorns the reverse, with a border legend proclaiming "FERDINAND D G R VNG" (Ferdinand, by the grace of God, King of Hungary), along with the date "1542."
