Item Description:

 This silver denar was minted in Hungary during the European Renaissance in the 16th and 17th centuries, at a time when Hungary was partially conquered by the Ottoman Empire. Displayed on the obverse side is the coat of arms of Hungary, while the reverse features the iconic image of the Madonna and Child: a depiction of Mary and her infant son Jesus. Adding the year to coins started gaining wider appeal in Europe at this time too, so the date that the coins were struck is also visible on most of these denars.

Throughout history, many Christian denominations have utilized icons as a part of their worship and, during the renaissance, there was perhaps no more venerated icon than that of the Madonna and Child. By venerating these icons, it was accepted that one was worshipping the figures depicted therein. One could imagine that putting such an image on a coin would not only increase its value, but also ensure that the holder would safeguard it as something sacred.
