Hungarian lettering on quarting coins of Sigismund
« on: November 03, 2017, 12:32:22 PM »
There are several letters on quarting coins of Sigismund (years 1430-37). I want to know what these letters mean and their relationship to the mint houses.
Thank you

These are billon denars of Hungary. The first of this general type was issued by Sigismund I (1387-1437), with letters X-X. In later reigns, they seem to have evolved into mintmarks, such as B-* over N for Buda, A-B for Alsólendva, S-L for Segesvár, K-R or K-P for Körmöcbánya, N-* for Nagybánya and C-L or C-G for Kassa.

See Coins and kings of Hungary by David Ruckser (free) or Münzkatalog Ungarn by Lajos Huszár (very expensive).

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