Good point, but i’ve just bought is so I’ll probably get it next week!
This was the closest coin I could match yours too on Numista. Nonetheless, this should provide a good starting point for narrowing down a more concrete attribution.
Thank you, I appreciate! Nice denar this one!I tried to find my coin on ma-shop for quite a while today , but still no result!That rev. cross/ double cross makes me think it my be Hungarian so I’ll keep digging!
Very much on the right track with Hungary's use of the patriarchal cross. I'd bet the coin depicts Sigismund, who is often shown with an axe on coins (https://www.moneymuseum.com/de/muenzen?&id=1425). These should hopefully help you narrow down. Good luck!
The thing is that a few other hungarian kings that followed him also dispaly an axe on obv. ,but this only makes it more interesting, in a funny way i'm happier for buying this cheap little coin than spending a few hundreds on one of my large talers. Here's a very nice doc. that i've just found about hungarian coins:

Just found the Corpus Numorum Hungariae from 1899 and it looks similar to a denar(billon probably) of Wladislaw III/Ulaszlo but i'm not sure yet. Sadly i have the Lajos Huszar catalogue of hungarian coins back home !
I always enjoy a cheap mystery coin
@PaulTudor after some rest, I did some research. No luck on helping to narrow it down, but saw that several rulers were depicted with the axe. I do think that Laszlo is likely the ruler you are looking for. Hope you can nail it down!
I couldn't agree more.
1.No idea what this is, maybe a spanish medieval piece
2.Denar of Ulaszlo I(1400-1444)
3. I thought it's a denar of the sale Ulaszlo ,but i'm not sure now. Obv. reads U(D?)EUS. Rev. P and S as mintmarks.
4. John Hunyadi(?), Rev, I and n star(?) mintmark
5. John Hunyadi(?) Rev B(S?) and S mintmark
I’m not using Numista a lot, though I have most of my talers collection marked there , just to help the statistics) Can’t believe that some people actually use the Numista’s rarity index as a reference for the mintage of some coins!
Numista is a great resource for identification and for keeping track of a collection. However, it isn't an infallible resource as many entries are without photos or non-existent for that matter. For example, the coin I've posted below doesn't even have a Numista entry. In my opinion, the first coin you posted today appears French, but I wouldn't put all my chips on such an attribution.
I know for sure that there’s many talers missing from Numista, but it’s a helpful place without a doubt!
