Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A post-medieval copper-alloy Nuremberg jetton of the Lion of Saint Mark type dating to the period c.AD 1500 to 1570. It is difficult to see due to how the coin has been bent, but it appears that the obverse type shows a Lion of Saint Mark standing left, nimbate and winged. The tail is raised and the lion is holding a Book of Gospels in raised right fore-paw. On the reverse, there is an imperial orb surmounted by a cross patty, within a tressure with three main arches. Legends are illegible on both sides.
