Here is a last one for me from this decade. It is a 2 Pfennig from the German Countship of Pfalz-Mosbach that was minted between 1460 and 1462. This uniface coin was minted in Nuerenberg and is attributed as Shulten 2737.

My only coin from this decade that can attributed to a specific year is this Venice grosso issued in the reign of Doge Francesco Foscari (1423-1457), Biaggi 2873. The initials m B for mint supervisor Marco Barbarigo can be used to date it to 1450.

Is that supposed to be Nürnberg, or some other place?

Here's my uniface Nürnberg pfennig, which is very similar in style, though obviously a different type. I think it's usually attributed to 1457-1464, but apparently different catalogs vary.
I apologize for the rotated picture. It was definitely the right way up when I uploaded it, and for several years after that for that matter.

Yep sometimes I forget about the added umlaut functionality.

Nice coin though!

This Lion d'Or of the Duchy of Brabant (Burgundian Netherlands) minted at Mechelen/Malines is dated at 1454-1456 by some auction houses, and 1454-1460 by others. Ref. Witte 470, Friedberg 29

Everyone has a lot of interesting coins. I have nothing for the 1450s but there's plenty to admire.

In English we regularly mangle foreign-language place names.

Nuremberg (note the m as well as the extra e) - Nürnberg.
Florence - Firenze.
Vienna - Wien.
Cologne - Köln.
Moscow - Moskva.

Plus many Indian cities, although we actually named the cities with our garbled interpretations (Bombay - Mumbai, Madras - Chennai).

I thought it was to do with not being able to pronounce or spell words in other languages, but some are easy to pronounce in English:

Milan - Milano.
Naples - Napoli.
Rome - Roma.

Some make no sense at all:

Marseilles - Marseille. (It's not the 's' that makes spelling or pronouncing Marseille difficult).

This seems to be particularly the case with places that we dealt with historically rather than only more recently. We've corrected a few, like Peking - Beijing, and after the Indians changed their city names to something more suitable, we changed them too.

We're not alone, though. London gets called Londres, Londın and Londen.

To be fair, this is an equal opportunity affliction of all nationalities (not just Anglos).

I've been looking through auction archives recently to research coins of Florence and I need to search on not only Florence and Firenze but also Florenz (German).

Likewise for Flanders, one needs to check both Vlaanderen and Flandre.

And for Silesia, you will miss quite a bit unless you search under both Schlesien and #346;l#261;sk (Polish).

Probably we could have a whole thread on this

Great coins so far! Here is perhaps my most rare dated coin (7-10 collectable pieces extant): a Kreutzer from the Austrian Duchy of Wiener Neustadt dated 1459 AD. Despite the unappealing flan cracks, you should be able to make out much of the obv and rev inscriptions: FRIDERIC RO IMPERA and ANNO DOMINI 1 & 7 9, where the ampersand is my attempt to make a medieval number four. It is attributed as Levinson IV-7 and Szego 2L35.

No 1450s (or 1440s) from me, but lots of interesting coins from others!

Love that Lion d'Or, @tdziemia!

Here is another Kreutzer, but from the Austrian Duchy of Styria. It is dated 1458 AD and attributed as Levinson IV-5a. The obv legend is FRI D G RO IMPERATOR while the rev legend is MONETA IN GREZ 1&78. Both the 4 and 5 are obsolete forms.

So fun to post these dated coins from the 1450s as our OFEY thread may never get back this far!

Here is a Groschen from the German Archbishopric of Cologne dated 1450. It was minted at Riehl and is attributed as Levinson I-90. The date is in Roman Numerals as M CCCC L. A recent pick-up for me, so this is my first time posting it.

Really enjoying these dated coins from decades we never reached on How Far Back! Please keep 'em coming.

Those St. Peter coins from the Rhine area might be the only way I will move back to earlier dated coins than my 1474. Thus far I have resisted the urge, but my willpower in numismatic decisions kinda sucks these days, so it probably won't be long.

This French Gros de Roi isn't dated, but based on the minting records is datable to 1455 AD (second emission). It was minted for Charles VII in Montpelier and is attributed as Duplessy 518.
