Armenian rulers minted coins throughout their history (see tetradrachm
of King Trigranes II). In the medieval centuries, the rulers of the kingdom
of Cilicia (now part of southeastern Turkey) minted silver and copper
coins with Armenian inscriptions that reflected their royal status and
ambitions (see coins of Levon I, Het‘um I, and Het‘um II).
