$6,683.00 USD

The Gold Zecchino from Achaia was minted during the reign of Robert d'Anjou-Tarente in the Principality of Achaia, a principality in the Peloponnese region of Greece that was part of the Latin Empire after the Fourth Crusade. The coinage from this period is often seen as a reflection of the complex political and economic landscape of the time.

The obverse typically features St. Mark standing right, presenting a banner to a kneeling Doge, symbolizing the authority and governance of the ruling class.

The reverse displays Christ standing facing, holding gospels and raising a hand in benediction, surrounded by a mandorla and stars. This imagery signifies the divine right and religious backing of the ruler's authority.
