The world of medieval European coinage is probably one of the most iconographically interesting periods in numismatics.

The multiplicity of centers across the continent, different intentions and traditions resulted
in a number of diverse, sometimes very unusual ideas.

As we have already shown, our auction includes a collection of Austrian pfennigs, mostly
one-sided. If these coins were minted in Poland, we would call them bracteats (and some of them probably half-bracteats).

Therefore, we invite you to the world of Austrian bracteats on the example of typologically different items from the collection mentioned!

Among them, an interesting depiction of a harpy eagle, a winged altar, a bishop, an eagle
or a unicorn … many of them also bear a shield as one of the iconographic elements

All the coins below will go to our auction on
