Republic of Venice, Doge Tomaso Mocenigo, 1414 - 1423
Tomaso Mocenigo was the fleet commander during the Crusade of Nicopolis. Struck in near pure gold, the design of the Venetian gold ducat, or zecchino, remained unchanged for more than 500 years, from its introduction in 1284 to the conquest of Venice by Napoleon's troops in 1797. The reverse legend expands to Sit tibi, Christe, datus, quem tu regis, iste ducatus which translates "To thee, O'Christ, Duchy, which thou rulest, be dedicated."
