    Leopold the Hogmouth Show Taler 1683, Vogl.-239, HCz. 2468, Herstal 1845, superb toned AU. Designed by M. Hofmann. The obverse portrays a double eagle brandishing a sword and sceptre atop a globe. The reverse has a 21 line legend describing how the Polish King John III Sobieski, with 20,000 troops, relieved the Turkish siege of Vienna in 1683 and drove them back to the Raab, and thereby freed Hungary. By leading the decisive Polish cavalry charge himself, Sobieski was acclaimed the hero of Christendom.
