A couple of date range ones. Both are 1323/24 Hungarian Denars under King Charles Robert.


Huszar 446,Unger 362,Rethy II-054A.






The same as the above but the shield is reversed.

@JohnConduitt, there are still some Golden Horde coins, this is not the end:))

Yes, don't worry, I still have more . But earlier than Uzbeg Khan (and the Arabic coins) they're less abundant.

I also have this coin. But we can say it's from one of the other AH720s

@JohnConduitt, yes, let's say this. But not for 722, because I have this for 722AH:)

Wow what a great start to this decade, with tons of great coins being posted.

Here is a Denar from Slovenia Slavonia issued by King Banus Nikolaus. It dates to between 1322 and 1325 AD. The alphabet is largely not Latin, but the obv inscription is roughly +MOHETAPEGIS SALNONIA. It is attributed as Rengjeo 229.

Wow, @Spence, that is an interesting coin!

The animal intrigued me, so I had to investigate . From what I have found out, it is a marten. It seems marten pelts were used as a form of money in the area in medieval times, so having it on a coin makes sense. Also, marten is kuna in the Croatian language, and kuna is the name of today's Croatian currency.

I also think the coin is from Slavonia (part of Croatia), not Slovenia. The inscription is MONETA REGIS P[er] SCLAVONIA ("The King's Money of Slavonia").

Yes you are 100% correct. Seems like I should be able to read my own writing on these 2x2s, but I guess not.


Let me try to make amends by posting a twin to @tdz's coin: This Esterlin from Brabant datable to 1329 to 1337 AD. I have it attributed as deWitte #349.

Lots of fun coins this decade.
@Eddie, I really like that parvus with the Pascal lamb/

I have one esterlin (well, a copy of an Edward III penny), which happens to be from this decade


I think just about every sovereign in northwest Europe made a coin imitating the English pennny in the first half of the 14th century: Robert III of Flanders, John III of Brabant, John II of Hainaut, John the Blind of Luxembourg, John I of Lorraine (I wasn;t aware of Aachen!).

A falcon--that is pretty cool!

Here is a Hungarian Denar that is datable to 1327 AD. The rev inscription is MONETA REGIS KARLI and yes that garbled mess is a bird--eagle not a falcon. It is attributed as Huszar 465 and Frynas H.24.22.

This is my last for the 1320s, if it even counts as that. It's undated.

Hugh IV of Cyprus (also Hugh II of Jerusalem) was a crusader king who wasn't all that keen on crusading. The coin seems to be called a 'big small', or actually a 'small big', if there's a difference, meaning half a gros.

Hugh IV Gros Petit, Cyprus Second Series, 1324-1359

Famagusta. Silver, 2.3g. King seated without cross at neck, no fieldmarks; hVGVE REI DE (straight V). Cross of Jerusalem; + IERVSAL'M E DE ChIPRE (Metcalf 572 var).


These had a fairly low mintage (using fewer than 40 obverse dies) but a large number have survived - they were hoarded during the Genoese attacks in the 1370s and 1380s that led to the decline of the kingdom. The 'big bigs' were probably minted at Nicosia and the 'small bigs' at Famagusta (now in Northern Cyprus).

Not a small enough time frame to move us back, but that is ok aw we have plenty of others posted to do that. This version of the thread is aimed at being super-inclusive, so post away. I know I've got a few which are pretty broad in terms of the date range.

For example, here is a Pfennig of the German Bishopric of Osnabrück. It can be dated to between 1321 and 1349 AD. THe obv legend is +GOTFRIDVS EPISC while the rev legend is MONETA OSNAB VRGE. With that said, either through the use of an undersized flan or some silver shaving over the centuries, both legends are completely off the flan now.

Actually "little groat." While "gros" as an adjective translates as big, or fat, here it is a noun, the denomination groat.

My only other coin from this decade also has a wide range, this 2 denier of the Duchy of Lorraine, Nancy mint, Boudeau 1465. It cannot be dated any narrower than the reign of Duke Raoul 1329-1346. Like Louis I of Flanders (one of my coins last decade), Raoul was also a casualty of the Battle of Crecy.


Obv: Shield of Lorraine in polylobe. R DVX LOTORENGIE
Rev: Sword flanked by two more shields. MONETA NANCEI

Here is a small Denar from the German County of Brechna that has a particularly wide date range (1325 to 1355 AD). The rev legend may be degenerate, but is something like OTOROTONh. It is attributed as Dannenberg AS84 and Thormann 206.
