    About this item

    This is an original medieval gold Florin coin minted in Florence with a mint-masters mark of a rose and two leaves for 1322. The Florin was one of most important gold coin in Europe used in trade for many centuries. 

    The obverse depicts Fleur-de-Lis (symbol of the city of Florence) with the legend in Lombardic script + FLOR-ENTIA.

    The reverse displays Saint John Baptist, patron of the City. Legend in Lombardic script reads S . IOHA - NNES . B (MM) the master's mark of rose and two leaves has been attributed to the year 1322 and is recorded from the Willanzheim hoard of 163 coins as #48.
