Kingdom of Hungary, 14th Century
Under the common King of Hungary and Croatia, Croatia had a degree of independence and the ban (a title similar to viceroy) was entitled to mint coinage. The Croatian banovac, with an inscription ending SCLAVONIA, was struck in large quantities from 1235 to 1384 and grew to overshadow the main Hungarian issues. This very rare "Hungarian banovac" with an inscription ending VNGARIA was part of an attempt to revitalize the main currency of the Kingdom.
