We owe much of the available Crusader coinage in the modern collecting sphere to coin hoards that were coins deposited in the earth and lost following the loss of Crusader forces at battles throughout the history of the Crusades. It was common practice that, if you began to see your forces losing a battle, to dig a hole behind some rocks and deposit your coin purse there or to have many forces in an army deposit their valuables in a given location for retrieval later. These buried caches often contain large amounts of freshly minted coins that did not have ample time to circulate widely during the era.

Many of the Crusader Deniers that we see at market come in various grades, and Mint State examples are still common and affordable to most collectors. The prevalence of high-grade, well-struck specimens has made these coins not just among the more-accessible types of the Crusades, but also some of the most exciting pieces to collect representing the period. There is a large assortment of varieties among these coins and as many dies were used for each hand cut.
