Coin finds are an excellent indicator of economic relations of any state. They allow us to identify a network of commercial and trade activity that each state was involved in.
Based on finds of Moldovan coins from the 14th-15th century, the author will discuss the involvement of this principality in the international trade along the so-called “Moldovan Trade Route” linking Central Europe with the Crimean Peninsula. The author will focus on coin finds recorded on the southern coast of the Black Sea (especially those minted in Italian colonies). Coins recovered in the Podolian Principality and Poland will be examined as well.
