Three orts and a pair of trojaks.
That makes a full house.

...something about the production of these coins meant the many surviving examples rarely show as high relief as the thalers, or the orts struck at Gdansk at the same time.



Thinner (lighter weight) planchets ?

More space between dies?

No collar?

Lesser strike pressure?

interesting to see so many Polish silver coins from this period!
probably linked to the intense trade with Dutch merchants who carried silver to Poland to buy grain


Nice historical perspective. Certainly the signs are that Poland-Lithuania was a wealthy nation in the late 1500s-early 1600s judging by the coinage.

@spence, that is quite a nice trojak. Many of them in the 1620s are poorly struck, worn, or both (as you will see with my 1621 contribution in a few days).

An Ort from Poland, Gdansk. I still keep it even though someone drilled a hole through it at some point in time.

1624 P-P Hungarian Denar under King Ferdinand II. I don't think this one is on a previous thread.

Yes, by 1588 we will be tired of seeing the bust of Sigismund III. Though before 1601 there is at least more variety in the king's portrait coming from the many mints that were operating earlier in his reign.

Unfortunately (spoiler alert) I don't have a Siggy thaler from his short reign as King of Sweden. Those are very scarce.
