1174-1199 Holy Warriors Set of Saladin and Richard the Lionheart Coins

1174-1199 Holy Warriors Set of Saladin and Richard the Lionheart Coins

Recall the valor and passion of the Great Crusades with this Holy Warriors Set featuring collector-quality silver coins of highly respected Christian and Muslim rival leaders. During the Third Crusade over 800 years ago, England’s Richard I (the Lionheart) and other European kings tried to reconquer the Holy Land from the great Muslim leader and unifier Saladin. Though achieving several victories, they failed to reclaim Jerusalem – the ultimate quest of the Third Crusade. A treaty between Richard and Saladin kept the revered holy city in Muslim hands but allowed unarmed Christians to visit.

You’ll receive a high-quality About Uncirculated 1174-1193 silver Dirham featuring star motifs and Arabic inscriptions including Saladin’s name and the date of issue. Plus, you’ll get a Fine/Very Fine silver Denier of 1189-1199, the only coin to bear the name of Richard the Lionheart (RICARDVS). The reverse bears the iconic Crusader cross, surrounded by the inscription AQVITANIE for the homeland of Richard’s mother. Supplies are limited – order this historic set in a deluxe cherry wood case today!
