Czar Stefan Uros V (1355-1371), silver "horse and helmet" coin. 19mm, 1.3g.

Reverse: Ornamented helmet, Latin legend VROSIVS - IPRAOI (Uros Emperor). Cross opening on the helmet facing left.

Comment: Rare type that apparently combines the designs and legends from the previous reign of his father Dusan. Both Uros V and his father Dusan bore the royal names Stefan and Uros. The reverse legend 'IPRAOI' hints at the Latin "Emperor of the Romans" used on some early Dusan coins.

25 April 1357 Emperor Stefan Uroš V signature from a document where he grants to the citizens of Dubrovnik lands from Ljuta to Kurilo. Serbian Royal Documents at the State Archives in Dubrovnik (1186-1479) 13570425 – car Uroš 2B. It reads: "Emperor Stefan Uros" in the first line without letter T in the name STEFAN. Second line in Latin. I can only work out last word PRIUS which means "first", "original", "superior" or "to go before". In this instance it probably meant to confirm its a original document. XXV could be Roman for 25th, followed by letter A which could stand for April. Full document can be viewed at Medieval Artifacts page.

Still, unpublished with the specific legends in any metal. Below is the work of Dr Karl Stockert issued in 1918 regarding these very rare coins.
