In the spring of 2011, a clay pot was found in a field nearby the village Stizhok (Shumsk district, Ternopil’ region, Ukraine). The pot contained about 2500 silver coins from 14th —15th centuries. In the article, we presented 25 specimens from the hoard, struck in the Golden Horde, Crimean Khanate, Caffa, Principalities of Wallachia and Moldavia, and Lithuania. The significant part of oriental coins bears the Tartar, Moldavian and Lithuanian countermarks. Most likely, the treasure was hidden during the Tartar military expansion at the end of 15th and beginning of 16th centuries.

Keywords: medieval numismatics, countermarks of “Asprokastron” and “Gediminas Column” with dots
