Richard the Lion Heart Penny

Anglo-Gallic, Richard I 'The Lionheart' as Duke of Aquitaine, 1172-1889. Silver Denier struck by Richard I at Poitou and bearing his name RICARDVS REX around a small cross. The reverse reads PIC/TAVIE/NSIS (The Latin for Poitou) in three lines. Fine-Very Fine for the issue. The English coins struck under Richard I as King of England (1189-1199) do not bear his name but are in the name of his father HENRICVS so these Deniers struck in his French possesion are the only coins to bear his name.
