Huszár 580, Pohl 119--, Unger 451-, Réthy II 125A, Frynas H.27.821 viewsHungary. Sigismund/Zsigmund of Luxembourg (1387-1437; Holy Roman Emperor 1433-1437)

AR parvus; .31 g., 10.21 mm. max., 0°

Obv: Four-part shield (Árpádian stripes and eagle), S-V-R above and flanking.

Rev: Cross with four crowns, pellet between upper cross arms.

The type was struck in 1387-1427 (Huszár, Pohl, Unger, Frynas and Gyöngyössy, although it terminated in 1410 per Engel).

The parvus (also called the “small denar” fillér or pankart) was struck with an average nominal fineness of 0.353 silver. Because of many worn out and counterfeit coins it was pulled from circulation after 1427 (per Huszár). Although not specifically discussed in this context in Engel, the parvus must have experienced the same rampant debasement as the denar did.

Huszár/Pohl rarity 4; Unger rarity 5; Frynas rarity C. Unrecorded privy mark.

Huszár/Pohl rarity rating 4; Unger value 8 DM; Frynas rarity rating C.

This emission was struck with a fineness of 0.582 silver and an average weight of 0.51 g. (per Huszár). However, Engel notes that in 1390 Sigismund was able to temporarily restore the stability of the denar by the issuance of this new emission, which was referred to as nova moneta. For thirteen years the value of the denar remained stable, and 100 were the equivalent of the aranyforint. In 1403 debasement occurred, and 130 were the equivalent of the aranyforint. The debasements continued, so that by 1406 the price of an aranyforint was 160 denars, it was 200 in 1421, 225 in 1423 and 320 in 1426.

Billon quarting, .47 g., 13.19 mm. max., 180°

Obv: Patriarchal cross, n--n in central fields.

Rev: Crown

The type was struck in 1430-1437 (per Pohl, Huszár, Unger and Frynas). This privy mark was struck in Nagybánya/now Baia Mare, Romania, under a collective authority (per Pohl).

Huszár/Pohl rarity 3; Frynas rarity C.

“Owing to inner strife and disordered general conditions, the coins [of this period] were usually minted with extremely low precious metal content; moreover, poor mintages were often struck with negligently engraved dies. As a result of the hurried, superficial minting, it was sometimes doubtful whether a faulty coin had been issued officially, or was a forgery” (Huszár 1963, at 15).

The quarting (also known as the fryling and as a moneta minor) was originally worth a quarter of a denar, but it “soon fell victim to the manipulations of the treasury. Its fineness decreased at such a rate that soon it contained almost nothing but copper. The result was economic anarchy. Trust in these silver coins was irreparably damaged, and, although the government officially devalued the quarting several times, its market value fell even more drastically. In the last years of Sigismund’s reign, 6,000 to 8,000 quartings were equivalent to one florin instead of the original 400” (Engel, at 223-224).
