These coins might have been minted for Crusaders.
The bishops of Valence had heard about the First Crusade (AD 1096-1099) and that the Crusaders would be crossing their territory.
They minted large quantities of deniers for the Crusaders to use further east.
Large quantities of them have been found in the Crusader territories of Syria and Palestine
