Alfonso VIII of Castile (1158-1214) - billon dinero (0.93 g, 17 mm).
Two five-point stars on the sides of the castle's central tower, which has a cross on top.
Obverse : ANFUS REX surrounding a crowned bust of the king on the left.
Reveres: CASTELA around a castle with two towers and alcazaba in the middle, which is crowned with a cross and has five-point stars on both sides.
Attractive piece, very fine preservation. Beautiful tonality and many details. Very scarse!
