This Wallachian coin is present on Romanian coins through the courtesy of Mr. Gabriel Vandervort, owner of Ancient Resource.
This coin was struck for to Dan I (1383-1386), son of Radu I (~1377 - 1383), brother of Mircea the Old (1386 - 1418).
The coin seems to corrrespond to position 87 of the Monede şi bancnote româneşti by George Buzdugan, Octavian Luchian and Constantin Oprescu (1976).
