Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A copper alloy Nuremburg jetton of the Lion of St. Mark type, issued between 1553 and 1559. The obverse has a lion nimbate (with a halo) standing left with tail raised holding the Book of the Gospels in his raised right forepaw. The reverse has the imperial orb surmounted by a cross inside a tressure of three rounded arches with a rosette in the external angle of each arch. This design of tressure, without the sharp triangular protrusions in the angles of the tressure, according to Mitchener (1988) p.364, no.1118, is a special form used by Iorg Schultes and Hans Schultes I. Iorg and Hans Schultes I were joint masters at Nuremburg between 1553 - 1559.
