    Incredibly Rare Gold Medal of Charles VI
    Very Possibly Unique in Private Hands

    Flanders. Charles VI "Birth of Archduke Leopold" gold Medallic 23 Ducats 1716 Choice AU - Test Punches, Kenis-4. 53mm/82g. By Roettiers. Draped bust of Charles IV right; CAROLUS VI · IMPERATOR FLANDRIÆ COMES at legend. Rev. Presentation of Archduke Leopold with arms surrounding at center; De Cæsare RoMano reX nas CItUR at legends with date in chronogram. Reflective in the fields with frost on the raised design and moderate handling in the fields. A test punch, in the lower right quadrant of the reverse, as well as one on the edge, was surely made to confirm the alloy. Extremely rare as an issue, especially in gold, with Kenis referencing gold, silver and bronze strikings. No archived sales have been located in any metal however, with the closest comparable medal being the sale of Kenis-3 by German auction house Kunker in February 2014 for 28,000 Euros hammer (or approximately $37,889 at time of sale). That piece, although in similar overall condition, did not show signs of a test punch. Unquestionably of the highest rarity, and belonging in a fine cabinet of medallic multiple ducats.
