Great additions!

St Mark?
Certainly! I just don;t know which side I think these Venetian coins usually have St. Mark conferring authority to the doge, but I see the reverse figure holds a book which could also be Mark. Need to do some research. Edit: yes, Mark obv and Jesus rev, normally holding an orb.

@Keith, that is a real beauty!

Here is my only "modern" Vatican coin, with St.Peter reverse

Will add another Venetian coin, this undated grosso (1289-1311) again with St. Mark obv and Jesus rev.

Nice one @tdz. I'm really enjoying the Venetian eye-candy, but am saving mine for a little later in the week.

For now, here are a couple coins to wrap up my St. Peter contributions from Trier:

1444 AD:




1599 AD:

-----Ghanaian proverb

"The danger we all now face is distinguishing between what is authentic and what is performed."

That 1444 is another beauty for an early dated coin.

I've got a good one for Saturday, but have one more before then.
For now I will add a MUCH later Trier St. Peter, this undated (circa 1918?) 10 pfennig Notgeld issue:

@Keith, you look to be deep in high quality Vatican coins!

Yeah, based on what I'm seeing here for Trier, it's a one trick pony.
Here's another "two-fer" on a Venice coin, this undated 40 soldi that was minted in 1577. Obv it's Saint Mark again, reverse, St. Justina (Giustina) of Padova.

To the best of my knowledge:

Papal States (1740-1758) 1 Quattrino, Ravenna mint during Benedict XIV tenure. St. Apollinarus standing with staff on reverse (displayed first)

Really super addition to the thread @otto. Thanks!

As you can see, obscure saints are more than welcome here (on a personal note, I've visited the famous basilica dedicated to this saint outside of Ravenna).

Here are a couple 13th Century Grossi from the Italian City State of Venice. As with the Grosso posted upthread, I think that there is an image of St. Mark on the obv and Jesus on the rev:

1268-1275 AD:



1275-1280 AD:

"If you climb a good tree, you get a push."
-----Ghanaian proverb

"The danger we all now face is distinguishing between what is authentic and what is performed."
-----King Adz

I'm especially glad you posted the second one. WHen I looked at the reverse of mine, I was wondering if there was some die defect affecting Jesus' arms (or if he had been doing some serious bodybuilding before sitting for the portrait). Now I see that his garments vary over the years, and this is what I am seeing.

My last two coins with saints this week are both from late 14th Century Venice, but on opposite sides of the denomination scale. The Soldino is likely slightly earlier than the Ducato and both feature St. Mark.
