At our E-Auction 9 – Coins of Stefan Batory
Ladies and Gentlemen, our e-auction once again exceeded the threshold of 4,000 items, reaching 4,250 items, which on January 8-12, collectors of various items will have the opportunity to obtain for their collections.
Today we are looking at Stefan Batory’s coins. In this section, the most outstanding item is the fantastic Gdańsk grosz coin, which was minted in 1578. An exquisite, circulatory, mint specimen with a beautiful, intense glow that fades into the mirror. The second highest NGC rating so far for the year 1578. Only 2 copies were rated higher!
The first Gdańsk grrosz year of Stefan Batory.
Punctuation variant of the obverse legend with a colon after D in the word D G.
On the reverse there is a punctuation in the form of stars, but without an ornament after GEDANENSIS.
Another beautiful coin is the Olkusz trojak coin from 1584. A rarer variant with the letters G-H (initials of the mint master Georg Hosen) on the reverse.
Punctuation variant of the obverse not described in the Iger’s catalog:
– no circles before and after the word STEPHA. A perfectly preserved specimen.
When browsing the auction items, the object of interest is also the trojak minted in 1586 in Riga. The coin was rated with the second highest grade in the PCGS MS63 grading.
The auction will also include two Vilnius trojak coins, a Riga grosz and a Gdańsk denarius.
