First King of France Historic Silver Denier

$137.99

LIMITED QUANTITIES AVAILABLE

"Vive le roi!" Celebrate the lasting legacy of King Philip II Augustus -- the first regent to call himself the King of France, who transformed a loose assemblage of Frankish feudal territories into the most powerful and prosperous kingdom of the era.

Though many rulers would come before and after Philip II, his impact on the history and culture of France are unmistakable. Over the course of his rule, he more than tripled the size of the kingdom and flipped the balance of world power from England to France for the first time in history. He also built the Louvre Castle as a royal refuge and fortress to protect his treasures and archive before joining the Third Crusade.

Now you can possess a piece of ancient French treasure in the form of this historic silver denier issued over 1000 years ago during the reign of Philip II Augustus (1180-1223 AD). Struck in precious metal, the obverse reads "PHILIPS REX,” while the reverse bears a Christian cross, the symbol of the Crusades.
