Medieval coinage began showing the advancement of the minting process. There are some very fascinating elements of world history that can only be found on coins from this era. The Byzantine Empire minted coins in Constantinople, and a variety of provincial mints in other urban areas. After the Syracuse invasion in 878, Constantinople became the only mint for gold and silver coins until the eleventh century. Other mints began around that time in other major provincial areas. Here you will find coins from various Byzantine mints, including Visigothic coinage, and coinage of Anglo-Saxon England. You will also find European, Asian, and Celtic coinage as well.
