Why add this beautifully preserved Hungarian Silver Denar Madonna and Child in Story Vault Holder to your collection?
The coin known as the "Maddonnenmunzen," the Hungarian silver Denar depicting the Madonna and Child, was introduced during the reign of King Matthias Corvinus (1458-1490). The coin was the first of Hungarian coinage to portray the stunning religious image, and among the first European coinage of the period to include a full date. These silver coins were hand struck in Hungary by Magyar craftsmen until the early 17th century, with a weight of 0.5-0.6g and a diameter measurement of 15-16mm.
