John the Baptist Renaissance Gold Coin

$863.99

In StockIn StockOut of stock

LIMITED QUANTITIES AVAILABLE

From an era of glorious rebirth comes a Dutch masterpiece wrought in precious metal -- an authentic Renaissance gold florin issued by Arnold van Egmond, Duke of Gelders.

Soon after the first golden florentines (or fiorino d’oro) were struck in Italy in the 12th century, the florin design quickly spread across Europe, inspiring a wealth of regional variations. In what was then Gelderland, these coins were called gulden (Old Dutch for golden). And they could only be issued by the powerful dukes who ruled the region.

This Renaissance-era gold coin was issued by Arnold van Egmond, Duke of Gelders between 1423 and 1472 and features a portrait of John the Baptist on the obverse, with a Coat of Arms on the reverse.
