Description

These coins were attributed by the Hungarian numismatist dr. Rethy Laszlo to Nikolaus Redwitz, ban of Severin during 1429-1435, who was also count of the royal mint in Hermannstadt. The opinion of dr. Rethy Laszlo was that Mircea the Elder struck in the Severin mint, his coins bearing the ruler's portrait on obverse and Nikolaus Redwitz used the same design, but using the Teutonic crest instead of the Wallachian eagle.
New researches carried by Romanian numismatists led to another opinion. They proved that the coins were minted by Dan II in the Severin mint.
