Coins of the Medieval Period offer an historically accurate picture of the time of knights and kings. From the Silver Deniers of the mighty Norman conqueror, William I, to the Silver “Hand” Hellers of the humble Austrian town of Hall, you will find these relics from the past tell quite a story to those who collect them.

The Medieval Period, or Middle Ages, lasted from the fall of the Western Roman Empire in the 5th century to the beginning stages of the Renaissance in the 15th century. In this large swath of time, countless battles were fought across Europe and Asia, and innumerable coins were struck. Synonymous with the technology of the dark ages, the coins of this era advanced little in their craftsmanship, reverting from the high relief art found on many ancient Greek and Roman coins.

Despite this rugged exterior, coins from the Medieval Period carry pure history inside.
