At our Auction 12 – Czworak is a rare and typologically interesting coin
Czworak is a rare and typologically interesting coin. During the reign of Sigismund II August, it was minted for only 5 years (1565-1569). It was the equivalent of 5 Polish crown grosz. This denomination was introduced as part of efforts to unify the monetary system in the territories of the Jagiellonian dynasty. The place of minting was the Vilnius Mint. This denomination, just like dwojak (two-grosz coin), allowed for free use of both Polish and Lithuanian coins. The issue of the coin ended in 1569. Below we present you a beautiful specimen from our upcoming auction. Variation with legend endings L/LITVA.
