Founded in 1098, the Principality of Antioch was one of the four short-lived feudal Crusader states created as a result of the First Crusade. Bohemond III officially ascended to the position of Prince of Antioch in 1163. The denier was a common coin carried by the Crusading knights, struck by multiple Mints within the principalities, usually bearing similar cross imagery.

The Antioch denier of Bohemond measures approximately 17 mm in diameter, with a weight of about 0.9 gram. Incredibly Detailed Crusader Style Imagery. The obverse features a stylized portrait of young Bohemond III, bare-headed and facing right, framed by a beaded circle and the inscription "BOAMVNDVS" (Bohemond). On the reverse, the name of the Crusader state "ANTIOCHIA" surrounds the encircled depiction of a cross with flared arms, known as a cross pattee, the symbol worn by the Crusading armies.

Impressive Mint State 62 by NGC. The coin exhibits a few scuff or hairline marks with remarkable eye appeal. The coin is presented in a protective NGC holder with certification label, in a distinctive Story Vault display case with an information card describing the years of the Crusades.
