Early Dubrovnik



Coin - Copper minca (follaro) - Early Dubrovnik

Copper minca (follaro), ca. 1500. Obv.: Renessaince bust of Governor, legend: DUX RAGUSIE; Rev.: City fortress

NUMISMATIC NOTES: Copper coinage (almost entirely absent in Serbia, with the characteristic exception of some coastal cities) was the first to be introduced in Dubrovnik, late in the 13th c., shortly followed by silver money.

HISTORICAL NOTES: The most prominent city wall features shown on the coin - the 14th century City bell tower and Minceta fortress tower - survive as masterpieces until today, despite the earthquake of 1667.
