Denomination : Silver Coronato.

Reference  : MEC - 891 to 982.

Size : 25.8 x 26.1 mm.  Weight : 3.96 grams.

Obverse : Squared cross with cross hatched decoration, with FERDINANDVS D G R SICILIE IER V around. Just a few letters are weakly struck.

Reverse : Crowned head of Ferdinand with a C behind the neck, with CORONATVS QA LEGITIM CERTAV around.

This coin presents an interesting problem as to what is the obverse and what is the reverse. Normally the obverse is the side showing the minting authority, but in this case his name is on one side, and the portrait on the other.
