Description

Maria Theresa Ducat

Unpublished and Highly Desirable

Maria Theresa gold Ducat ND (1753-54), Vienna mint, KM-unlisted, Fr-418var., MS61 NGC. A rare dual-busted ducat depicting the busts of the imperial couple, Maria Theresa and Franz I, on both sides. While technically fitting the classifications of Fr-418, the legends on this type are entirely different than the plated specimen in Friedberg, and thus, it's appropriate to label it a variant. Upon searching, the only other match we were able to find was an example, from the same dies, that realized 3,200 euros in a 2007 Kunker auction (Auction 122, Lot 2464). That specimen, much like the present, showed no signs of actual circulation, but had numerous planchet striations (as struck) that remained in the central motifs. Given the apparent rarity, and the usual design composition, anything but intense interest would be unexpected.
