nice coins !

this is the last silver coin I can post in this thread: an early taler from Germany with a dragon slayer as popular theme

Mansfeld Taler 1535
Hoiger VI. Gebhard VII. Albrecht VII., Philipp II. Dav. 9479; Tornau 94
Obverse: MON __ ARG __ COMI . DOMI . DE . MANSFE
Reverse: C* HOIGER . GEBHAR . ALBER . E . PHILP 15___35




this is my only slabbed coin;
the slabbing explains the distractive E in the plastic capsule
I did not yet find time to remove the capsule and having no experience, I wonder if it is easy or not

Lovely thaler!

Nice Groat! Here is a contemporaneous one from Thorn

More Poland groats to come in the next week I am guessing, starting with @giljan's, and now mine. During 1534-35 Sigismiund's portrait changed from the "pageboy" haircut to the one we saw yesterday where he wears a hat under the crown. From the Torun mint, both types were made in 1534.

Indeed that is a really amazing piece of craftsmanship. Was this part of a series of Biblical topics addressed by this medal maker?

Thanks for posting!

I have a more mundane Polish grosz for 1533, Torun mint:
