Here is a Denier from the French Priory of Souvigny. My French is poor so I'm still pinning down the exact attribution in Poey d'Avant, but it was minted somewhere in the range of 1080 to 1213 AD. That is St. Mayeul on the front holding the crozier (inscription reads SCS MAILVS).

Super coin! So many of these saint-place combinations are local, and as @erafjel pointed out, Royal French coins don't have saints' images (too bad, because we are deprived of St. Denis), so thankfully we have some abbeys/priories in the French world that were minting.

@Spence: I would say your coin is Poey d'Avant 2169. Translated description: "Face of St Mayeul, face/front, carrying the crozier on the left. R: Cross with equal branches."

@erafjel, hey thanks for the help! That does look like a good match to the plate drawing for PdA #2169 shown below.

Any thoughts on the date for this coin? I have seen this listed in books and on the interwebs:

1. 994-1213 AD (PdA)
2. 1080-1213 AD (Roberts)
3. Mid- to late 12th Century (Duplessy)
4. 1180-1213 AD (numista, worldofcoins, cgb.fr)

I understand that much have changed in terms of out knowledge since PdA was published in the mid-19th Century, but I'm puzzled by the closeness in numbers (but not in time) of the two start dates 1080 and 1180 AD. Any thoughts? Thx!

Sorry @Spence, no idea about the date. Not that much into feudals, I'm afraid.

Edit: Generally I would put most trust in Duplessy, that being the latest work in the area.

I do find those occasional mismatches in catalog info interesting (this may also be what is going on with interpretation of my Poland coin)

While that gets sorted out, I'll echo @pepactonius' "one more Russia" with a far less lovely "one more Papal States," this battered copper quattrino from 1623, Ferrara mint and St George

Nice Quattrino @tdz and sorry for the tiny tangent on the dating of my Denier. (Also, thx @erafjel for the advice.)

Here is a 1585 giulio of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany with images of St. Francis (namesake of the duke, Franceso I Medici) on the right, and St. John the Baptist, patron saint of Florence on the left. St John figures prominently on the coins of this place, from the medieval "florin" to the Renaissance representations on the coins of the Medici dukes

Lovely coin! I am fine with having it under T.

Here is another T, this 1678 piastra of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany showing John the Baptist baptizing Jesus

Here is a pair of early 18th Century 3 Petermengers from the German Archbishopric of Trier. I like the image of St. Peter sitting on a cloud holding his key.
