Why purchase this Prince Bohemond III of Antioch Silver Denier?

After the First Crusade, the Principality of Antioch was established in 1098 by Western European Crusaders as a short-lived feudal Christian state. This Denier was struck in Antioch, 1149-1163, in the name of Bohemond III, while under the regency of his mother Constance, with a weight of approximately 0.90 gram and a diameter measuring about 17 mm. Once Bohemond reached the age of majority, Constance attempted to retain power but was forced off the throne by the Antiochene noblemen.

Classic Crusaders Style Design Elements

A cross Pattee is featured at the center of the reverse, the symbol worn by the Crusaders, framed by a circle and inscription naming the Crusader state of issue, "ANTIOCHIA."

A simplified, cartoon-like portrayal of Bohemond III is located on the obverse, within a circle, framed by the inscription "BOAMVNDVS," which translates as Bohemond.
