Why add this Madonna and Child Silver Denar in Story Vault Holder to your collection?
The Hungarian Madonna and Child silver Denar is known as "Maddonnenmunzen," to distinguish it from the earlier medieval Hungarian "Shield Coin." The design, introduced in the mid-1400's, symbolized the beginning of the Renaissance in Hungary. Different from earlier European medieval coins, this coin type was one of the first to feature a full date, although it is frequently obscured or off the flan due to Minting by hand strike. When visible, some issues have inscribed dates below the Madonna, while others, typically those struck prior to 1570, are dated above the Coat of Arms.
Renaissance style Madonna and Child
The infant Jesus is held in the arms of the crowned Madonna on the obverse, surrounded by a beaded border. The legend "PATRONA VNGARIE" translates to "the Patron Saint of Hungary." On either side of the Madonna are the letters "K" and "B," which represent the coin's Mint mark.
The reverse illustrates the Hungarian Royal Coat of Arms, a shield decorated with four Hungarian symbols, bordered by the ruling monarch's name and title.
