Why add this Hungary Silver Denar Madonna and Child with a Random Date to your collection?
The Madonna and Child Silver Denar of Hungary was circulated for centuries in the Kingdom of Bohemia and Hungary in the Medieval and Early Renaissance periods. The coin was struck by hand by Magyar craftsmen in what is now an area of central Slovakia, the mining town of Kremnica, from the mid-15th to the early 17th centuries. Minted under the authority of the reigning monarch named on the reverse, the silver Denar was struck with finished weight of 0.5-0.6g, and a diameter of 15-16mm.
Madonna and Child in Renaissance Style
A gorgeous image of the Madonna holding the baby Jesus in her arms is depicted on the obverse, framed with a beaded border, and surrounded by the inscription "PATRONA VNGARIE," which translates to "the Patron Saint of Hungary." The Mint mark of the Kremnica "K" and "B" appear on either side of the Madonna. This Mint still operates today, minting circulating coinage for a number of countries.
A detailed representation of the divided shield of the Hungarian Royal Coat of Arms adorns the reverse, bordered by the ruling monarch's name and title.
