replica ducat Austria
1752
Emperor Franz I reigned 1745-65.
FRANC.D.G.R.I.S.A.GER.IER.REX.
Francis, By the Grace of God, ever august Emperor of the Holy Roman empire, King of Germany and Jerusalem
TU DOMINE SPES MEA 1752
Thou Lord is my hope, 1752.

'Some time ago a correspondent to the 'Australian Coin Review' (now incorporated into the 'Australasian Coin & Banknote Magazine') mentioned having found, what appeared to be, an unlisted Austrian Ducat dated 1752 bearing the legend 'FRANC. D.G. R.I.S. A. GER. IER. REX.' with the portrait of Francis of Lorraine on the obverse and the legend 'TU DOMINE SPES MEA' on the reverse. It was very similar but 'not quite right' in comparison to others of that time period.
The 'coin' was in fact manufactured and distributed on behalf of the 'READERS DIGEST' organisation some 12 years ago as a promotional gimmick, and samples regularly turn up on market stalls in both 'gold' and 'silver' finishes.
These 'coins' usually have a dark chemical reaction spot in the centre where they had been attached with an adhesive glue to a 'Reader's Digest' give-away sheet.' - April 1996.

Certainly the best cow portrait I've seen on a coin. I think we've seen more stylized versions of that cow on other coins from this region, but this one suggests a mintmaster with quite a sense of humor (is that a collar?).

@tdz, this excerpt from Wikipedia may be of some interest--evidently that is a piece of hide at the bulls neck:


Quote:
Mecklenburg is the site of many prehistoric dolmen tombs. Its earliest organised inhabitants may have had Celtic origins. By no later than 100 BC the area had been populated by pre-Christian Germanic peoples.

The traditional symbol of Mecklenburg, the grinning steer's head (Low German: Ossenkopp, lit.: 'oxen's head', with osse being a synonym for steer and bull in Middle Low German), with an attached hide, and a crown above, may have originated from this period.[citation needed] It represents what early peoples would have worn, i.e. a steers's head as a helmet, with the hide hanging down the back to protect the neck from the sun, and overall as a way to instill fear in the enemy.
