The Alex G. Malloy Crusader Coin Collection

We are pleased to offer the Alex G. Malloy Collection of Crusader Coins, assembled over a 40 year period during which Mr. Malloy was a premier dealer, collector and author in the field of crusader numismatics. For a time he was on the staff of Forum Ancient Coins as a consultant, but he is now retired. Alex G. Malloy, Irene Preston, and Arthur Seltman coauthored Coins of the Crusader States, an excellent one-volume compendium of all known Crusader types, and an important standard references for crusader coins. Many of the coins listed on this page are ex Seltman and other important collections, in addition to coming to us from the Malloy collection. Rarely are so many crusader coins, with a wide spectrum of types and great rarities offered. This is perhaps the opportunity of a lifetime to acquire some superb examples for your collection or to begin a new exceptional collection of crusader coins.

Crusaders, Frankish Greece, Principality of Achaea, John of Gravina, 1322 - 1333

Click for a larger photo
John of Gravina, Count of Gravina 1315–1335, Prince of Achaea 1318-1332, Duke of Durazzo 1332–1335 and ruler of the Kingdom of Albania (although he never used a royal title), was a younger son of Charles II of Naples and Maria of Hungary. He was a younger brother of (among others) Charles Martel of Anjou, Saint Louis of Toulouse, Robert of Naples and Philip I of Taranto. The death of Louis of Burgundy in 1316 widowed Matilda of Hainaut, Princess of Achaea. Her suzerain, John's brother Philip I of Taranto, had her brought by force to Naples in 1318 to marry John and bring the Principality of Achaea into the Angevin inheritance. Matilda refused to surrender her rights to Achaea to her husband and ultimately contracted a secret marriage with Hugh de La Palice. This violated the marriage contract of her mother Isabelle, which had pledged that Isabelle and all her female heirs should not marry without permission of their suzerain. On these grounds, Philip stripped her of Achaea and bestowed it upon John: the marriage was annulled for non-consummation, and Matilda was imprisoned in the Castel dell'Ovo.Arms_of_Achaea

Bohemond V was Prince of Antioch and Count of Tripoli from 1233 to his death in January 1252. Bohemond V was the son of Bohemund IV of Antioch and Plaisance of Gibelet. Like his father before him, Bohemond had a notorious dislike for the Knights Hospitaller and the neighboring Kingdom of Armenia, preferring an alliance with the Knights Templar. Peace with Armenia was assured only shortly before his death, with the mediation of Louis IX of France.
