CRUSADERS The Latin East Kingdom of Jerusalem County of Acre Imitating Ayyubid caliph al-Amir 11th-12th Century AD Bezant (Dinar) -- #ME54512

AV Bezant (Dinar) 22mm. 3.89g. Acre mint(?) Imitating Misr 3rd Phase, struck 1187-1260

Poorly rendered Cufic legends in concentric circles; pair of pellets below central inscription.

Poorly rendered Cufic legends in concentric circles.

Metcalfe LE 136 var. (pellets on reverse); CCS 5c var. (same)

EF. Choice strike for the type. An atypically light flan crack is noted. A 'Bezant' (Bisant or Besant), perhaps derived from 'Byzance' is a medieval merchant's name for any Arabic Dinar of the weight of a Byzantine solidus. The Crusader Bezants were probably named after the 'Saracenic Bezant', another current term for the coin. The two additional pellets below the central inscription make this coin an interesting variant that is seldom offered.

Balog & Yvon 7; Metcalf, Crusades 487; CCS 4a

Good VF. Scarce earlier type. Original flan crack from time of manufacture visible, but resealed by striking the coin. Caliph al-Mustansir ruled from 1036-1094.
