Description:
An Extremely Rare 1547 Ducat of Danzig
Danzig. Sigismund I gold Ducat 1547, Kopicki-7343, Dutkowski/Suchanek 80 IVb, Fr-1, 22mm, 3.50g, AU, wavy planchet. * SIGIS · I · REX · POLO · DO · PRVSS · 1547, crowned and armored bust of Sigismund right / * MONE · NO · AVR · CIVI · GEDANEN, two lions supporting the arms of the city. This example was issued in the golden age of Danzig's power and influence, nearly a century after being granted autonomy by Casimir IV Jagiellon and 30 years prior to repulsing the armies of Stephan Bathory. Owing to its control of trade at the mouth of the Vistula, Danzig would remain the largest and wealthiest city on the Baltic until the wars and plagues of the 17th and 18th centuries forced its decline and eventual incorporation into the Kingdom of Prussia in 1793. Sharply struck on a flan of good metal with no cracks or flaws, this extremely rare ducat is only the third of this date to appear at auction in decades.
