Description of obverse and reverse The ? 10 silver coin depicts Blondel on his horse beneath a romantic castle of Duernstein. He strums his mandolin and sings the song which Richard recognises. The legend has it that Richard had composed the piece himself. The reverse shows the seizure of Richard the Lionheart in the kitchen of the inn at Erdberg. Leopold and two soldiers apprehend him despite his disguise as a kitchen help tending a roast chicken. Beneath the pilgrim’s cloak he wears, can be seen the three lions of England emblazoned on his chest.
