Crusader States, Antioch, Bohemond III (1163 -1201), Denier

The First Crusade was declared in 1095 by Pope Urban II and its objective was to provide military support to Byzantine Emperor Alexios I against the Seljuk Turks, as well as reclaiming the "Holy Land" from Muslim rule. The Crusades started around 1095 and continued for nearly 200 years, during that time four different Crusades were made to retake Jerusalem. The Crusades in the Middle East ended when the city of Acre fell in 1291. These silver deniers or pennies were issued in the name of King Bohemond III (1163-1201), who in the summer of 1191, alongside Guy de Lusignan met Richard of England (Lion Heart) during the siege of Acre. Richard was part of the Third Crusade (1189–1192), an attempt by three European monarchs (including Richard of England) to reconquer the Holy Land from Saladin. The coins on offer have a helmeted Crusader Knight on one side wearing chain-mail and were minted in Antioch (modern-day Turkey) which was captured in 1098 during the First Crusade. The legends read BOAMVNDVS on the obverse and ANTIOCHIA on the reverse and they grade Good Very Fine. These coins are now over 800 years old!

Picture of Italy, set of 5 Italian pre-Euro coins

Italy, set of 5 Italian pre-Euro coins

Before Italy joined the Euro Zone, they, like most countries issued their own coinage. But unlike other countries there were about 3,000 Lire to the Pound. The coins, when you could find them, cost more to make than their face value! We have a collection of five Italian coins struck before the Euro, 4 are Uncirculated but the very difficult 200 Lire is in circulated condition. You get the 5 and 10 Lire in aluminium, the 50 Lire a scarce denomination in Uncirculated, the 100 Lire Uncirculated and the very difficult 200 Lire in circulated condition. They date between 1969-1996 and were difficult to find even before they were replaced by the Euro.
