Arsacids of Armenia (53 – 428 AD) – representatives of this Armenian royal dynasty didn’t mint coins (maybe some of Arsacids king mint coins, but we don’t know about that)

Period of Governors and Foreign Domination (428 – 885 AD) – during this period Armenia was under the rule of Greeks, Persians and Arabs. So Armenians used their coins.

MEDIEVAL ARMENIAN COINS (1080-1375)

Kyurike II (Kiutike) king of Lori (Principality of Lori, Kyurikyan kingdom) minted coin.

The first inscription in Armenian language was founded on that coin. It was only medieval coin with Armenian inscription minted in Greater Armenia. The type is based directly upon the anonymous Byzantine Folles of John Tzimisces and Basil II, both of which were commonly circulated in Armenia at the time.
