Description

1677 Andrzej Trzebicki Medallic 10 Ducats

Possibly Unique Baroque Masterpiece

Andrzej Trzebicki Medallic gold 10 Ducats 1677, Hcz-4050 (AR only R7), 41mm, 34.752g, AU58 NGC. Boldly struck, and lustrous, with extremely high relief. The obverse has a portrait of Andrzej Trzebicki (Bishop of Krakow) facing right, while the reverse has a rather whimsical image of a goose facing left, with the date below in Roman numerals. The designer of this impressive piece was Johann Hohn, a German engraver working with the mint at Danzig, and also with various other German mints. We can find no record of an example in gold, either at auction, or in numismatic reference books. Exceedingly rare, and certain to be one of the true highlight items of the Eric P. Newman Collection sale of world coins.

Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate' Partnership of Eric P Newman / B.G. Johnson.

Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
