Good morning Young,

Your coin is a denaro of John II as King of Sicily (1458-1479) minted in Messina under mint master Giovanni de Iudice (1458-1467).  Obverse features an eagle with the legend  :plus:IOANNES D G.  Reverse features the shield of Aragon between I-I and the legend  :plus:REX:SICILIE:I.  Nice coin.  Reference is MEC14 #883 through 887b.

Cheers,

David
