King Stefan Radoslav (1228-1233), Copper Cup "Mary Blessing the King" Type Coin, 25mm, 2.7g.

Obverse: King in imperial attire facing and holding globe, standing with Mary mother of Jesus being blessed by her. This is only known coin where king is holding a scepter, a ceremonial staff or a small banner on its own. Greek Legend: CTEФANOC PIZ ("Stefan King"), Greek initials between figures MP and ΘV on the right side standing for "Meter Theou" meaning "mother of god".

Reverse: Jesus Christ sitting on the high throne. This is the only known coin of this kind with high throne in the background. Latin Legend: IC - XC ("Jesus Christ)

Reference: Compare to J ( 2 ), I ( 1.3 ), D (2)

Comment: Extremely, extremely rare coin. So far one of its kind. There are only 8 known coins similar to this type, 7 have Jesus on the reverse without visible throne and on 1 there is also no visible throne on the reverse but king on the obverse has different attire. This is the only example with king holding a scepter and a globus on the obverse and Jesus is sitting on the high throne on the reverse. On all other known examples king is only holding globus there is no scepter. Lovely toning, dark brown/yellow/green patina and natural aging always a contributor to its authenticity. Excellent detail with very visible legend. Very well preserved being nearly 800 years old.
