    Description

    Prussia. Friedrich II gold Friedrichs d'or 1749 AU53 PCGS, Berlin mint, KM241, Fr-2382, Schr-13. A wonderful example of this rarely-encountered singular issue, featuring the cuirassed and draped bust of the King and a crowned eagle perched atop war trophies, flanked with standards and crown above. The surfaces are attractively-toned with coppery-red accents woven through the protected areas and limited wear affects the design illustrations somewhat evenly. A few more noticeable handling ticks are noted in the open fields, but all are within the confines of the assigned designation. At present time, this is one of only two certified examples of the type, and in this desired state of preservation, sure to garner much attention.

    Known as one of the greatest leaders during the 18th century, Frederick the Great is credited with modernizing Prussia and turning it into a powerful military force within Europe.
