Cyprus and Europe 13th-14th century

3 Very interesting coins linked to Free-masonry and an silver medieval item with cross.

These coins survived the Crusades and centuries of War for the Holy ground in Jerusalem.

The coins are from the Period of Peter II, 1382-1389 and the other 2 probably from Janus who lived from 1398-1432 AD. One variety has a cross in the upper corner right of the large cross.
On the Obverse you see the Lion of Cyprus. The reverse shows a holy cross.

Besides the coins also a silver, probably buckle end with cross motif from approximately the same period.

The common perception of the majority of historians about Freemasonry is that the origin of the organization goes back to the Crusades.
In the beginning of the 14th century the Templars became too powerful and the church wanted make them disappear. The trial of the Templars ended with the termination of the order. Some managed to escape and according to a thesis based on various historical documents, a significant number of them took refuge in the only kingdom in Europe that did not recognize the authority of the Catholic Church in the fourteenth century, Scotland. There, they reorganized under the protection of the Scottish King, Robert the Bruce. Some time later they infiltrated the most important guild in the medieval (the wall builders)
