Why purchase this Uncirculated Silver Denier of Antioch, struck in the name of Prince Bohemond III?

At the time of his father's death in 1149, Bohemond III was one year old, obviously too young for ascension to Prince of the Crusader state of Antioch. Until ousted by the noblemen of Antioch in 1163, Constance, Bohemond's mother, ruled as regent. This Denier of Antioch, struck during the regency period, 1149-1163, features the image of Bohemond as a child. The coin measures approximately 17 mm in diameter, weighing about 0.9 gram.

Crusader Themed Design

A cross pattee with a single pellet in one corner is depicted on the reverse at the center of a circle, similar to the emblem worn on the Crusaders uniforms. The inscription "ANTIOCHIA" surrounds the image

A rudimentary, stylized image of Bohemond III as young bare-headed child is featured on the obverse, encircled by a beaded frame and the inscription "BOAMVNDVS" (Bohemond).
