Hungary, Charles I Silver Grade I

Born Karoly Robert, but known as Charles Robert or Charles I, he was born in 1288 and died in 1342. He was invited to Hungary by a Croatian Lord in 1300 and when Andrew III died the next year, Charles was crowned King. He had to fight many battles to keep his crown and believed in absolute power for the King. These Silver Dinars have the portrait of the King on one side and the coat of arms on the other side. Remember that these Silver coins are about 700 years old and supplies, are of course limited. We can offer them in two grades, Grade I and Grade II. Here we present Grade I, in this coin the portrait is much better and of course for an old silver coin, either grade is most impressive.
