    Here is a medieval coin I picked up of Robert of Anjou.

    Many were listed by a single seller & this had the best decent weight/face combo.

    What a cool coin @Mat, kind of a English a bit, and French a bit! If I knew a "giglato" was a type of silver coin, I had forgotten!

    Oh! Nice!

    I like these gigliati. They've been on my radar for a year or so. Very handsome medievals. I put this one in my watchlist after one I liked even more (and almost bought) ended up being sold. I don't know if I'd ever end up actually buying it, but ... well ... I bookmarked it anyway. You know how that goes.

    So I don't have one of those yet, but I did scratch the itch for a "seated king" medieval type (and covered the Crusaders, too) when I bought this one from CNG earlier this year. It is at PCGS as we speak. Wish me luck.

    My (clipped) example I got pretty cheaply:
