I have a more mundane Polish grosz for 1533


At least it is two-sided, which is more than can be said for my Pfennig.

Yeah, but your pfennig has a dog on it, which more than makes up for any other deficiencies

Still uniface, but with a wolf this time.

1532 K-B Hungarian Denar under King Ferdinand I.



1532 K-B under King Ferdinand I variant with the Zapolya style Madonna and rosettes in the legend instead of points.

1531 Hungarian Denar under King Ferdinand I with an eagle wings mint mark;Huszar 961,Unger 744o. It is difficult to see the eagle in the photo but it is at 6:00 under the Madonna. The obverse is very double struck. Ways to identify the eagle wings Denar are the reverse N's in the legend and an X over the crest.

@giljan, that was a lovely 1531 groat!
An interesting connection among the 1531 and 1530 coins ... Albert of Prussia was the nephew of Sigismund I of Poland (his mother, Sophia Jagiello, was Sigismund's sister), and was elected Grand Master of the Teutonic Knights in 1511. After first battling against his uncle (1519-1521), he wound up pledging his fealty to Sigismund in return for being invested as hereditary duke of Prussia in 1525. He was also the first European sovereign to adopt Lutheranism as state religion (just 8 years after the beginning of the Protestant Reformation).


For 1530 I again have the same coin as @giljan (PRVSS obv instead of PRVS), and my last portrait coin of Sigismund I:
