1486 Austria Guldiner PCGS MS67 (1953 Restrike) SOLD
1486 Austria Guldiner PCGS MS67 (1953 Restrike)
This is the 1953 restrike of a 1486 Austria Guldiner which was the first taler silver dollar sized coin of regular issue and is sometimes referred to as the great-grandfather of the crown sized silver coins later issued by countries throughout the World. The coin is 40.1 mm in diameter, is made of .900 fine silver and is cataloged in the Krause Publications Guide to Unusual World Coins as X #M28. This example of the 1953 restrike of the 1486 Austria Guldiner has been graded MS67 by PCGS. The coin is bright white and very lustrous on both sides. There are no significant marks, hits or other distractions on the coin as the ultra high superb gem grade would suggest. The obverse of the coin is the crowned Arch Duke Sigismund of Tyrol standing facing with sword and scepter, lion with shield at left, helmet at right, the restrike date of 1953 is at the base of the obverse. The reverse features a knight with banner riding a horse surrounded with 14 shields with the 1486 date below. The inscription 1. TIROLER TALER ~ A 900 ~ ~ ~ 1303 ~ 1953 HALL IM INNTAL ~ ~ ~ is marked on the edge of the coin though it is hidden by the PCGS holder. Only three (3) examples of this coin have been graded MS67 by PCGS with no examples grading higher. A beautiful well-preserved example of this very popular design.
