Comment: He was the eldest of the three sons of Balsa I. Extremely rare and scarce example shared with Prince Lazar (1371-1389). One of few ruler shared coins. This is newly identified type by the Museum of Krusevac. Most catalogs and books are listing this type under Prince Lazar.
He had 2 brothers Stracimir and Balsa II. He was contemporary of Emperor Stefan Uros IV Dušan, Stefan Uros V, Knez Lazar, Vukašin Mrnjavčević and his son, Marko, Nikola Altomanović and Bosnian Ban Tvrtko I.
In 1375, Prince Lazar Hrebeljanović and Đurađ I Balsic convened the state assembly (sabor) during which Jefrem was chosen as Serbian Patriarch 1375–1379 also known as Elder Jefrem. Date of this coin minting does must fall in between 1375 and 1378 when Djuradj Balsic dies January 13th in Skadar.
