Michele Morosini, Doge of Venice 1382

Fr-1228, 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 fabulous example of this rarity, with bold details and choice surfaces.

The dominance of Morosini, who had one of the briefest reigns, was cut short when he died of plague just months after being elected Doge.
