Coin of Kärnten?
« on: September 03, 2018, 12:13:13 PM »
0.44 g.
It looks like a coin of Herzog Bernhard 1202-1256. But the weight is small.
Attribute the coin, please.

Nicely preserved coin.

obv: duke standing with flag
rev: the lamb of god (easter)

Our medieval coins expert, Arie reacts: identification is correct, but the weight indicates that this is a half pfennig (obol). See this coin.

Picture saved before it disappears.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
