King Stefan Tomasevic Kotromanic (Despot of Serbia 1459 and King of Bosnia 1461-1463), silver dinar, 2.2g

Obverse: Crowned helmet over coat of arms (with crowned V inside), Latin legend around: +STEFAN CRAGL (STEFAN KING), R on the left and double star on the right

Reverse: St. Gregory standing nimbate with cardinal's hat and long staff, Latin legend around: S GREGORI PAPE

Comment: In 1888, the archeologist Ćiro Truhelka excavated bones in a settlement close to Jajce known as Kraljev Grob (King's Tomb) and found the skeleton of a decapitated adult male. Though there is no direct evidence that these are the remains of Stephen Tomašević, folk tradition and circumstantial evidence have led to the conclusion that they are. The bones were placed in a glass coffin, and have since been housed in the Franciscan monastery in Jajce.
