Marino Zorzi, Doge of Venice 1311-1312
Fr-1217, PCGS-graded MS-65
Obverse depicts St. Mark standing right presenting banner to kneeling Doge. On the reverse Christ standing facing within stars, holding the gospel and raising hand in benediction. A magnificent example of this rarity.
The 50th Doge of Venice had a very brief reign of 11 months. As ambassador to Rome, Zorzi attempted to ease tensions over the contested city of Ferrara.
