King Stefan Uros I Nemanjic (1243-1276), "Banner" silver coin. 

Obverse: Bare headed King receiving patriarchal cross from St. Stefan (nimbate), 2 sides Latin Legend: VROSIVS REX S STEFAN, ("Uros King St Stefan").

Reverse: Christ enthroned, holding Book of Gospels, Latin Legend: IC - XC, ("Jesus Christ").

Reference: Ljubic III, Maric 1956 T XIII 5/6, D (4.8)

Comment: Stefan Uroš I Nemanjic was the first to begin exploiting the mines for silver, which would later become one of the main sources of material wealth and power of the Serbian state in the Medieval times. His first coins were minted on the Venetian model with saint standing next to the king and Jesus sitting on the throne on the reverse.

By faithfully copying Venetian matapan 21mm, 2.178g +/- 1% he sought to establish a trade with Venice. So weight and size is possibly one way to differentiate between Stefan Uroš I Nemanjic coins and the coins of his sons.

King Stefan Uros I Nemanjic (1243-1276), "Banner" silver coin. 2.1g.

Obverse: Bare-headed King receiving patriarchal cross from St. Stefan (nimbate), 2 sides Latin Legend: VROSIVS REX S STEFAN, ("Uros King St Stefan").

Reverse: Christ enthroned, holding Book of Gospels, Latin Legend: IC - XC, ("Jesus Christ").

Reference: LJubic III, Maric 1956 T XIII 5/6, D (4.8)

Comment: Born in 1221 and died in 1280 in Serbia. Based on Archives of Dubrovnik Uros I was coining money, however the beginning of coining as well as the issue of determining what he was really coining remain in the sphere of assumptions as his coins are very similar and difficult to distinguish from the coins of his sons Dragutin and Milutin. King Stefan Uros I Nemanjic was buried at Sopocani.
