Great Brunswick coin, and nice to see Russian copper again. For today I have this Saxony-Poland 1736 pfennig, Dresden mint. I think @paralyse posted one of these about 4 weeks ago). My only contribution between 1744 and 1730 when I will pick up again with fewer interruptions.
In this year, the monarch who reigned as Friedrich August II of Saxony, and as Augustus III of Poland-Lithuanian appointed the 51 year old Johann Sebastian Bach as court composer for both the Saxony and Poland courts (after some 3 years of pestering by Bach). While many of Bach's most famous works had been composed earlier in his life, the final parts of his Mass in B Minor were completed while in the employ of Augustus.

I know that not everyone is into the heraldry that appears on our coins, but @pepactonius' 1735 coin and mine from 1736 have something in common: they both bear a complicated coat of arms of a sovereign who is ruling two nation-states simultaneously.
That great 1/6 thaler of Bunswick-Luneberg-Calenberg-Hanover was issued by the same guy who is on the obverse of @numisrob's coin, George II. So, the coat of arms on the 1/6 thaler has emblems of both places. Using compass directions, the SW, NW and NE quadrants are the emblems of Great Britain: the harp of Ireland (SW), the 3 lions courant (running) of England an lion rampant (rearing) of Scotland in the NW, and the fleur-de-lis of France (NE). The SE quadrant contains 2 lions courant of Brunswick (upper left), a lion rampant for Luneberg (upper right), a horse for Hanover (lower left) and crown of CHarlemagne for treasurer of the Holy Roman Empire. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georg...14-1801).svg

Likewise, on the reverse of my 1 pfennig of 1736, we see the eagle and mounted rider for Poland-Lithuania in the 4 quadrants, surmounted in the center by the twofold shield of the elector of Saxony.

I'm one of those into it

That 1/6 thaler from Brunswick-Luneburg is indeed interesting (and beautiful). The use of the French fleur de lis on German coins is unusual, I think. I can only think of coins from Strasbourg (part of the German Holy Roman Empire until 1681), where a single fleur de lis appears (but as a symbol for the city itself, not of France). It is quite fascinating that a heraldic symbol with roots in English claims on the French throne during the Hundred Years' War, ended in 1453, spills over onto coins in Northern Germany several hundred years later.

Just a little more than a week before I can join again (with more fleur de lis coins ).

For 1717, I have a coin from Brunswick-Luneburg-Calenberg-Hannover, which looks a lot like an English shilling or half crown, especially the reverse.
