Denomination : Silver Denier.   Mint : Koln.

Date : Probably struck between AD 1167 and 1175.

Size : 17.9 x 18.3 mm.  Weight : 1.50 grams.

Reference : Hav - 541.

Grade : VF, with a nearly complete obverse inscriptions (unusual for these).

Obverse : Bishop seated forward, holding a crook and a book, with EPI COFVHIT ARC around.

Reverse : Church enclosed by a city wall, with EA COGONIA CMAI (or similar) around.  Interesting how the L is upside down in COLONIA.

The inscriptions I have listed above are probably not exact, but are as close as I can work them out based on what I see on this coin, and on other specimens I have been able to locate.
