Why add this Random Date Hungary Denar Silver Madonna and Child to your collection?
This Madonna and Child Silver Denar was minted in Hungary from the mid-1400's until the early 1600's, and represents the onset of the Renaissance movement in Hungary. The period was marked by constant war with the Ottoman Turks, whose goal was to bring Islam to Central and Western Europe. The strong religious-themed design struck on these coins was to be interpreted as a sign of piety, Christian faith and an act of defiance towards the Ottoman Turks.
Stunning imagery of Madonna and Child
The obverse depicts the baby Jesus held in the arms of a seated, crowned Madonna. Inscribed "PATRONA VNGARIE," meaning "the Patron Saint of Hungary," and the letters "K" and "B," the coin's Mint mark.
The reverse features the Hungarian Royal Coat of Arms, a four-part shield adorned with Hungarian symbolism, surrounded by the ruling monarch's name and title. The year of minting will appear either at the feet of the Madonna, or above the shield.
