Hold a fascinating piece of history with this genuine coin issued over 800 years ago in medieval Armenia! It was struck under King Levon I – whose leadership in Armenia spanned three different Crusades in the Holy Land. The first was the famed Third Crusade, led by Philip II of France, Richard I (the Lionheart) of England and Frederick I of the Holy Roman Empire. Thanks to Armenia’s location between Europe and the Middle East, the nation was able to line its coffers by selling necessary supplies to crusaders!
These silver Trams depict Levon I holding a cross on the obverse. On the reverse, a patriarchal cross is shown flanked by two lions. The inscription by the will of god is shown in Armenian. Rich in history, this coin is still available after more than 8 centuries, in your choice of two beautifully preserved grades. Supplies are limited, so order now to own a true piece of history!
