CAROLINGIANS. temp. Robert I. King of West Francia, 922-923. AR Denier (19mm, 1.31 g, 1h). Crinon Group 1, Series 1, Variety 1. Chinon mint. TVRON to right, diademed and mantled bust right / + CΛINONI CASTRO, Crinon, Catalogue, p. 73, 1-4/2 (same dies); Poey d’Avant 1670; Fécamp pl. XIV = Crinon, “À propos de deniers inédits de Blois (Xe siècle): le monnayage à la tête dans les domaines de Thibaud de Tours et Thibaud Ier (durant les deux premiers tiers du Xe s.),” BSFN 48.1 (January 1993), p. 469; CNG Inv. 956854 (same obv. die).

The first coins from Chinon, deniers with the name and portrait of Louis IV d'Outremer (936-954 AD), were replaced by anonymous portrait issues on the standard of the Tours deniers, the trade coin of medieval France. This coin was the prototype for a long series of increasingly degenerate portrait coins that were struck in numerous locations through the 13th century.
