Stefan Vladislav II (1316 / 1321-1324), Silver Sword Coin, Grosso, 1.8g
Obverse: Bare-headed King is sitting on the throne holding sword across his lap. Latin Legend MONETA RE·-·GIS STEFAN ("Money of the King Stefan")
Reverse: Christ enthroned, facing; to left, IC, to right, XC. ("Jesus Christ")
Reference: LJ (V-20,21), J (6), I (2.4.1) D (12.42)
Comment: Born in 1280 and died in 1325. Since the King is featured without crown and Stefan name is used on the coin it is debatable but possible that this coin was issued by Vladislav II in 1316 when he took over the rule of Srem from his father King Dragutin. Some conclude that coin is the example of the coinage of King Dragutin but absence of crown makes a strong case for Vladislav II.
