1750 Liard of the Prince-Bishopric of Liege (Austrian Netherlands)
Prince-Bishop Johann Theodor von Bayern.
23mm, 3 grams copper.

A great example of what happened when they gave a rather impious and somewhat eccentric prince-bishop the right to mint his own coins...and mint he did, striking large quantities of junk silver and copper coins which were grossly underweight and had engraving and quality ranging from mediocre to laughably bad. The junk coinage was at one point prevalent enough in commerce (see Mr. Gresham's law) that it threatened to bankrupt the entire Austrian Netherlands as trading partners got tired of being (literally) short-changed and proper coinage was hoarded, melted and debased.

Bishopric of Salzburg - Austrian States
1759 2 Kreuzer. Sigismund von Schrattenbach
Billon, 17mm, 1.1 grams; die axis 180 (coin turn)



3 year type. About Uncirculated with some luster and a neat "stripe" toning/alloy composition effect. The uneven strike and ragged flan are normal and as-minted/original to the coin.

Obverse: Cartouche with denomination ( 2 ), the date digits of 1, 7, 5, and 9 quarterly surrounding; SALZBURGER . LANDMINZ . with the A in LANDMINZ repunched over another letter, possibly a "D?"

Reverse: Bifurcated arms of Salzburg and Austria in a baroque braced and framed cartouche.

Ref: KM 389; H. Zöttl 3085. Scarce in higher grades such as this one.
