Nice medievals in a few of those recent posts. I like that sharp early Henry VIII portrait!
And a long string of spectacular ancients as well.

Two of my favorite Lorraine medievals (both gros) from Duke Jean I (1346-1390) whose reign saw the issuing of some really beautiful coins

Ionia, Phokaia AR trihemiobol



Easily one of my favorite archaic style Greek coins, from a time when Greek art was just beginning to get an identity separate and distinct from Persian and Egyptian artistic traditions.
